First Frog of Spring
This has been rather a long winter, but these last few days were mild, and today we have both the first snowdrops and also a few frogs awake in the pond. I think the de-icer may have something to do with this, because the water is a bit warmer than just the sunshine would make it, but at this stage of the game, I am willing to cheat a little. There was a pair of Carolina wrens examining the basswood tree in our back yard this morning. I hope they will stay.
