The peepers! Those little frogs with a big sound are peeping away and it is the best. sound. ever.
|The robins are back too. Just noticed them in our own yard this past week. They really descended upon this tree in our front yard.|
|The buds are fattening up on our trees and the red bud maples are definitely out. This is a tulip poplar tree and it's the last to get leaves in the spring and the last to give them up in the fall.|
This week I have plans to begin some spring nature study with some help from the spring study over at the Handbook of Nature Study blog and the FIAR spring nature study. We are also behind on replacing the art in our gallery frames in our dining room. We'll be working on a spring project this week for those as well.
It's been spring for a few weeks now, but things are slower here and especially this year. It's been a long, cold winter and actually we are still expecting some snow this week. Isn't it April?
