Spring in Maryland

We’ve had the usual up and down Spring temperatures. The first wave of daffodils–yellow trumpets–is starting to fade as the second wave gets underway. The forsythia is in full bloom. The cherry blossoms are out. And yesterday’s warmth brought out the first bumblebees I’ve seen this year, as well as a cabbage white butterfly. The cardinal couple were observed engaged in mate feeding more than a week ago–a tender moment with each bird holding one end of a sunflower seed–so I’m looking forward to more cardinals.
