A spring walk

I went for a walk this afternoon to check the progress of spring. I actually heard peepers but couldn't get the movie mode to work on the camera. It has been too cold for peepers or so I thought. Maybe they know something we don't?

Every year the turtles in the pond get a little larger.
The geese know me and head for the water when they see me. So far I haven't had to chase them off the yard this year.
The oak trees aren't willing to surrender last year's leaves yet.
I wish I could have caught on camera the little beaver who swam up to here then dived under.
S/he appeared just the other side of this dam but you can't see it.
A welcome bit of color in a mostly tan and grey world.
The Mullein (Verbascum thapsus) is growing new leaves already.
A ground squirrel watches me nervously.
A daffy will bloom tomorrow?
Meanwhile, Tim just enjoyed the sun.



Shelley, thank you for sharing some of your spring with us, because our lawns are covered with half a foot of snow! It gives us hope and brings a smile. Love, Lelanda

You've got a real Spring going on there. Nice turtle shot, btw. I like that one best.
