Finally, some signs of Spring

Spring has been pretty slow around here.  Finally, a sure sign that it is here has shown up though.  The first crocus of the year has shown up in our yard.


They may be slow because of the deep frost layer we had this year.  Or maybe some got eaten by the many critters that have come around.

I walked to our pond.  Chorus frogs are singing loudly.  I think I can hear spring peepers as well, but they are fainter and I am not sure.

I have yet to see a butterfly although others have been seeing the occasional mourning cloak or eastern comma for about the last week and a half.  I did see two dragonflies, though–the migratory Anax junius.
