The sap has begun running in my white spruce trees along the back of the property. If you click on this one you can see the reflection of the blue sky in the droplet.
The birds are loving it (and when I went down to the river today it was opening up and two geese were honking - they're baaaack!)
Last year's wild purple asters are gleaming their last stand before they are replaced by this year's growth.
And best of all - the great retreat is on! I can see mulched beds and lawn! This is the first spring we have seen this thrilling sight here as it was just last summer that we had the gravel (left by previous owners) taken out of the yard and good earth and beds and sod put in. Believe me, this is so much more exciting to see.
