Oh Spring, you are so welcome here. On my latest adventure at Claude Moore Park with Henry we found so many signs of your arrival, like
buzzing at the beehives!
I wanted to get closer to take better pictures of the bees, but they started swooping at my head so I took their warning seriously and left them alone.
We also happened upon some
Canada Geese! Okay, that one is silly because we always have Canada Geese at the park. But they seemed happy to be strolling around in the warm air and sunshine.
Henry really liked that one, who (unfortunately for Henry) strolled away from him and back toward the pond. We also found
daffodils! Wonderful glorious cheerful yellow daffodils.
I was just a little excited to to see them. And
Painted Turtles! They’re a bit shy, so now you see them,
now you don’t. But there were dozens, sunning themselves on logs in the pond. I haven’t seen them in months. And we discovered
mud! “Icky sticky mud”, as Henry says. Next time we’ll have to remember to wear our boots. I had to fish one of these shoes out of the mud after Henry went running and the shoe stayed behind. Not that Henry seemed to care.
