Lichens



Lichen inspiration from 2009, winter is still lingering here and I'm longing to get out into the woods for my Spring foraging activities.  Nope not lichens I merely photograph those, I'm talking morels and other edible yummies!

Spring has Sprung


Well sorta, in about three weeks most of the bulb type flowers should start popping up.  This from past experiences/observations of when the Robins, Cedar Waxwings, and Grackles return from their winter feeding grounds.



The neighbors crabapple is preferred over ours, once they pick it the birds will start in on our tree.



Some of the Robins are looking a little rough around the edges, this one was healthy looking.


Grackles are pairing up already, not surprised.
