Week in Review

It had been a very busy week and there are still things to do before we head out on our first of many week-end away. I was out hiking 4 days in the past week and the weather was so enjoyable. So nice to have the sun and the warmth finally return. I just have to remember the sunscreen!

Painted Turtles enjoying the warmth

Turtle of many colors

Posing for the camera

A sparrow trying to join the Downy Woodpecker for some suet

Tree Swallow singing his hearth out!

Largest turtle I have seen in the wild. 
I think it is a Snapping Turtle. It was about 14 inches across.

When it surfaced it had a small turtle on it back

Can you find the sparrow building a nest in the osprey's nest?

Rain drops on the tulips

The doffodils have opened

A tiny raindrop on the petal

Fully open and showing its beauty

Some of the first flowers of the forest

Just about ready to open

The yellow center on such a dark plant

Soaking up the sun on the forest floor
