I was immediately greeted by lots of bird song - especially yellow warblers singing from all over the park! The lower gardens were very busy. Apparently the catbirds had blown in as well and were busy singing their multi-note songs as well as meowing here and there. Tree swallows busy with their nest boxes - almost got dive bombed by one. Baltimore orioles have appeared looking absolutely brilliant. House wrens, goldfinches, jays and song sparrows also busy and titmice called from the woods.

Aside from some daffodils and bulbs, the wild violets are blooming with their delicate lavender purple flowers as well as the bloodroot down near the pond. Spring is really here - dare I say?
