Today was the first I have gone for a walk without a jacket,
so spring is really here.
I took the dogs around the far side
of the marsh,
past where the coltsfoot are blossoming.
The patch is getting larger!
Some of the pussywillows are finished blooming,
but not all of them.
Annie kept saying "Come on in, the water's fine".
There were a lot of the trees coming into leaf
The next image is red elder, in bud.
Jake was starting to say we had walked far enough.
But we were not all the way around the marsh yet...
We went past a couple of old fence posts,
and admired the tiny leaves in the grass.
About this point, Jake's hip was unable to hold him, and I had to carry him a ways. Good thing he only weighs 29 pounds...
Also a good thing we were almost home.
