I Forgot to Tell You…

A week ago today we saw our first heron and our first egret for the season. Oddly, they were almost sitting together. They couldn’t have been more than 15 feet apart in the same pond. That’s unusual behavior. Usually the herons are very solitary, and usually the birds are spread MUCH further apart when they are fishing.
I’m trying to make a mental note that they return around tax time in April.
The red bud is showing color, and the forsythia is just beginning to loose it’s blooms. I was happy to see buds on the last of the miniature lilac plants. I love watching spring unfold.

  1. I’ve been looking all off to find a forsythia bush that I can steal a sprig or two to go will my pussy willow branches.
    Oh and can’t wait to pick some lilac when in Denver we have several large bushes there.

  2. I envy you. I’d love to live near water and have a chance to see such birds. Having said that, however, we did have a lesser woodpecker in the garden during the week. A surprise because they don’t usually come to places like this and they are very rare. But there it was on the silver birch pecking away….
