More Signs of Spring!

The most evident sign of the progression of spring is the bud growth on the beeches and maples surrounding the riverbed. Although spring has begun on the calendar, the animals that are typically seen around this time of year are still using winter survival methods to deal with the severe and infrequent weather we’ve been experiencing. On my last visit to the Salmon hole I observed these beautiful little blue flowers which I learned are called blue-eyed grass. During my most recent visit a large majority of the forest bed was covered in snow and ice so any flowers that were beginning to bloom either died in the cold or were difficult to identify. I was hoping to encounter a frozen wood frog on my expedition but unfortunately I had difficulty identifying any amphibians.
