Good Friday morning to everyone! It looks like it will be a very nice day, the temp is supposed to be 7C, which puts it into the mid 40s which is fantastic for us. That means the snow will be melting fast today and even faster tomorrow as the temp gets even warmer. Yesterday a gull flew overhead for a while advertising the fact that they are now back for the summer. Oh that was just such a joyful sound to hear finally. I always look forward to the call of the gulls in the spring because it means that winter is behind us and warmer weather ahead of us. It wasn’t Sir George however, but I hope he will be back very soon too. So the return of our summer birds is under way and more will continue to arrive in the next few days.
And now, some more fun and bright flowers for us to enjoy…
Starting off with this very bright “yellow wood sorrel” which is a plentiful wildflower in this area, but a rather small flower. But what it lacks in size it makes up for with brightness.
And one that I shared earlier last summer, the “Bicknell’s cranesbill”, one of our smallest wildflowers but a real beauty. It is about 1/4 inch (6mm) across and I always enjoy finding these tiny gems.
I hope you all have a wonderful Friday and God bless!
Steve and Muffin.
