I visited my centennial woods spot on April 26th to observe the phenological changes that the area experiences.
While I did not find any wildflowers poking through the leaf litter, other signs of spring were present. I noticed trees starting to bud, a gray tree frog sleeping on a limb, and few fiddleheads emerging.
I had to venture out past the area of my phenology site a little bit to see the Pussy Willow and fiddleheads.
I also sketched the Boxelder bud. This tree had the buds that were the farthest along in development at my site.
