Some of you might be thinking/wishing that it was me who posted this sign. It wasn't, but Phillip and I kept an eye out for the camera while exploring the park on the first day of spring. Sorry to say that we didn't find it.
It was warm enough for this Mallard couple to be out in the sunshine doing their thing and they didn't care who was watching.
But it was still cold enough for there to be ice on Duck Creek, making for a lovely contrast to the above scene.
The sap is running!
A sure sign of spring.
Temps above freezing during the day....
Temps falling below freezing at night....
Makes the sap flow in the maple trees.
Wisconsin is a leading producer of maple syrup.
Cattails at the water's edge.
This is how we all feel about the arrival of spring.
