Sixty three Trumpeter Swans today. Obviously another small flock joined in on the fun. The snow is melting and ice slowly opening up on a few lakes and ponds.
Milkweed pods, a nice plant to have in your yard. Monarch Butterflies rely on this plant to lay eggs. Their population has decreased drastically in the last decade and they need our help to survive. I have seven varieties around my yard, but also put a lot of other flowers to attract these flying flowers.

Not too long before I am putting a kayak in the water. I am more than ready.
Sure looks like a smile.
Oh Mister Bluebird, sing your song for me!
