Spring Has Not Sprung

Since this winter has been so long and it is still very cold and even snowing in the middle of April, there are not any noticeable signs of spring yet.  There was snow and slush covering most of the forest floor, which revealed some grey squirrel tracks.  There were no signs of amphibians or flowering anywhere.  The nearest edges are the edge of the trail which is probably about ten meters from my spot, and the creek that runs through my spot.  The edge effect is the different species from each side of the edge coming together in one spot.  I’m sure my spot provides habitat for forest interior species such as squirrels, frogs, toads, and birds.
