Slow spring

After what has seemed an interminable wait, spring has arrived with a rush in the last ten days. Our Kwanzan Cherry has flowered for the first time since we planted it, and our Red Bud Maple is gorgeous this year.

We have set out an Oreole feeder and can't wait to see if we can attract these beautiful birds.

Walking the Shug trail yesterday, Judy and I were saddened to see that five little goslings had disappeared overnight... fallen victim to a fox. The mother had sat patiently on her nest for a month.

The Beavers are as busy as ever... their dam has created a lake upstream not far from Dryden Lake.
Everywhere are felled trees, all material for the next endeavour!
