Crow’s Nest: Spring will come

March 21, 2013

Spring may be here, but it hasn’t felt like it much yet. This morning peepers call tentatively from wetlands surrounded by wet snow. They were more vocal last week when it was warmer. Wood frogs squabble in a couple wetlands here, but they too have been a little muted so far.

The mud is relentless, the wind blows strong, and so far only alder catkins count as the first of native spring blooms. Snow still appears in the forecast. So here’s a reminder that spring will eventually come, followed by summer.
