Spring Cardinal, Eloise Butler Wildflower Garden

Yesterday’s Phenology: A very sunny and nice early part of the day, then clouded over later in the afternoon. Temp in the 60s. Saw a hairy (downy?) woodpecker in the park, pecking, and a egret swooped down oh-so-slowly-and-gracefully into the shallows of the pond. Also found a very very very young turtle, sitting on the path, looking over-warm. Carried him (or her) down to the pond, and he or she swam away, happy, I assume, to be back in the wet.

Song of the day: Joe Cocker, Feelin’ Alright
