2nd Day of Spring??
When we arrived, everything was covered in snow.
The bog–now full of water!
View of the house from the southwestern edge of our property.
Lichen on one of our many fallen logs. I think this tree came down during Hurricane Sandy.
It ended up getting into the upper 50s, though, so I went out exploring. I wanted to find the water that maps we found online said traversed our lot. I found it– there is a rushing stream (at least this time of year) only about 100 feet from our deck:
This freshet leads to a more defined stream barely visible in the background. I’ll have to see if that stream is still flowing during the drier part of the summer
At its widest, the water is about 8 feet across. Clear and visibly flowing.
Other than that, trimmed back the helleborus I put in last summer, and pruned back the butterfly bush. Daffodils are just starting to poke up. Ready for spring!
