Spring has sprung
If there were a couple of weeks that I could magically slow down time to a slow crawl right now would be that time. As the earth begins to awaken again after a long snowy Winter, each and every moment contains something precious that it makes me want to get out there and see it all. I could spend all day outside exporing. The days are just not long enough. Every Spring I become ten years old all over again. I heard my first Phoebe while up on a hike in the County Park! The skunk cabbage are blooming. There are Spermatophores in one of the Vernal Pools I monitor. The other two pools are still mostly still covered with ice. It is in the low 50s today....just glorious out. Later while walking a client dog that lives out in the valley.....SPRING PEEPERS!!!! Happy Dance! Let the Herping begin!
