After an incredible long winter it really and truly is Spring. The
first butterflies of the season, Mourning Cloak and Tortoiseshells,
are around on warm days, The Black-Capped Chickadee is
singing its Spring song, The Red-winged Blackbirds are back,
and flowers are slowly making their presence known.
Today as I was cleaning up my gardens I spotted a queen Yellow
Jacket that had just emerged from its winter torpor and of course
flies and ants are out and about.
