Today is Gundi’s birthday. This afternoon we went for a walk in Warkworth along Mill Creek, seeing the river bubbling and meandering along, a hawk swoop to pick out a fish lunch, and greenery unfurling everywhere.
This Spring, after the longest winter we can remember, we have been pleased to see Nature re-assert her authority with the re-appearance of a number of our treasured creatures – bumblebees, wild bees, green frogs, purple- and gold-finches, hummingbirds, rose breasted grosbeaks,
today, bluebirds. OK, we have to put up with groggy blackflies beginning to
bite, chipmunks and squirrels filling their cheeks with sunflower seeds, and
raccoons and skunks sneaking out from the undergrowth. Today we stopped the car
to help a very snappy snapping turtle across the road. It is just giddying to see
Spring progressing at full tilt. Baltimore
