Finally, spring has arrived – only a few weeks late. The grass has turned green. People are out in force and the weather is quite pleasant.

It will be a while before trees come into leaf but non-native trees such as Norway Maple and this lilac get a head start on their native cousins. We’ll probably have to wait another month before sumac and black walnut have leaves.

These mallards are still occupying the small pond that forms in the spring. I just hope the water level stays high for them.
