Green, green, green!
This will be my last post in this series (the assignment it’s for is due this week!). The alders are finally leafing out noticeably, and the rain we got recently has brought the creek level up again after a few weeks of dry weather. While walking out to my site I saw 10+ species of butterfly on the wing and the trees were full of singing birds. It feels like summer – over the weekend I biked into town to get ice cream! Looking back at the first photos I took of Pickerel Creek back in February, it’s a pretty dramatic change.
Thanks for tagging along with me this spring! Summer is just around the corner.
