Green Thumb Sunday-Signs of Spring
Saturday was a warm sunny early spring day with highs of 6C. Decided to try to find some signs of spring.
Just outside my own front door peeking thru the ground I found
Took a short drive to Long Point Bay marshlands hoping to see some tundra swans on their return migration journey , they fly 6 000 km between the Canadian Arctic to their wintering spot in the United States. The swans use the marshes of Long Point Bay for a rest and a staging area after flying over Lake Erie.
When first arrived all there one could see was one lonely Canada GooseCan you spot him in the middle of the pic?
All of a sudden up from behind a row of trees rose flock after flock of white swans filling the bright blue sky with their v formations.
The warm air was filled with their honking.
A small group then more and more.
So exciting to see these regal birds.
Still wanting to find more signs of spring , drove further and by a Bed and Breakfast called Green Valley, they are tapping their huge old maples.
3 positive sights of spring in my area!
Any in yours?
