Am so looking forward to Spring……

The light this time of year is wonderful. This is what dawn looks like when I first look outside in the morning.  Very soon the spring ephemerals will start making their appearance.  I’ll looking for hepatica, violets, colts foot and hopefully I’ll catch the sight of a bloodroot colony.  There has been a sweet smell in the woods during the warmest days of these past weeks.

The first Blue Heron returned to the nearby rookery this past weekend.  I finished some brush clearing out at the edge of their spot just in time (last weekend).  It gives me both a nice  vantage point for watching them through the trees from a couple hundred feet without spooking them.
