beech leaves

The American Beech trees have finally lost last year's leaves.  That means that the new leaves are about ready to pop out.  And that means that spring is here.


One of the sweetest smelling early bloomers - even if it isn't showy.

So spring is finally making a slow entrance here in New England.  Each day the views look a little greener, and today we hit temps above 70ºF for the first time this year.  These pics are from a couple of days ago, and there are more out there now!

Just reporting the first frog sighting in my own little stream this spring.  I guess this warm rain finally tempted them out.
I'm glad it's warm enough for frogs again

Now if only that stubborn pile of snow outside my back door would melt...
