|Thornapple at Flood Stage|
|Is it a duck egg?|
Things are still bare (a few trees had red buds visible). But, if you look at the ground, there are small flowers already in bloom. I didn't see any trilliums, a sure sign that Spring is here, but they are not generally out until May.
Along the way, I saw a wild turkey (not the liquid variety), lots of waterfowl, robins, cardinals, redwing blackbirds, a kingfisher, squirrels and several rabbits (must have been preparing to deliver Easter baskets). Oh, there were also a few early mosquitoes.
Early Easter morning, I was out in front of church and, before the sun rose, there was an ensemble of birds singing. Down by the river, we could hear a pair of sandhill cranes and up the road a bit, breaking the beautiful music, was a rooster. As it did for Peter, the crowing of the rooster reminded us of our human limitations.
I hope you had a nice Easter.
