Yesterday was the first really springlike day we've had in a while. After a cold, wet, snowy/sleety/rainy weekend, it was most welcome. After supper, I went for a walk along the river, where the water was as high as I'd ever seen it. The moon peeked through the bare branches, where buds are starting to swell.

The woods were full of starlings and red-winged blackbirds, all singing as the sun sank into the west. It was a glorious symphony.

I saw what I thought at first was a beaver swimming in the river, but when it climbed out of the water, I saw its long narrow tail and recognized it as a muskrat.

I know there are beavers around too, because I see the evidence of their teeth on the trees.

While I was busy trying to capture the muskrat, I totally missed the great blue heron until it took off and flew away. What a gorgeous creature! One of my favorites. I'm glad to see he's back this year.

Today we're back to rain, so no forays in search of the peepers my friends have been telling me they've been hearing. Perhaps tomorrow. I crossed over the river on my way home, and it's even higher than yesterday. I'm very glad I don't live closer to it!

So I see that more people are abandoning LJ because of the new TOS. I have no immediate plans to go anywhere, and I'm sad to be losing even more folks here. I do have a mirrored Dreamwidth journal, but this is still my primary residence, for now. I'm loathe to give it up, after all the wonderful folks I've met here. I hope you don't all leave, but if you do, please let me know where I can find you elsewhere on the interwebs (if we haven't already connected).

It is finally spring here in New England! I found crocuses coming up along the bike trail the other day:



Yesterday, I went to the wildlife refuge, where the ice is finally gone.

I found lots of bugs on my walk today, as well as critters (and evidence of), and more.

It was a perfect day: blue skies, light breeze, low humidity, warm but not hot, puffy clouds. It rained lightly for about a minute, but I was in the woods so I didn't get wet.

I took a rather longer walk than I'd intended, but it felt good to be outside today. I looked for more lilies, but they're just starting to bloom; by next week, they should be in fine form.

I think I'll walk down to the library now to return my book and see what else is there. It's just such a gorgeous day, I want to be outside! It can stay like this all summer if it likes. :)
