Is It Spring Yet?

Well, well! Spring finally looks like it's creeping in around here. The temperatures are definitely warmer and Spring colors are starting to show. Not to mention some critters are appearing who either migrate or hibernate in the colder months. Yes, it's finally starting to look like Spring around here. I took pictures yesterday and today in the Dykeman Spring Nature Park to document the progress. Enjoy!

My first sighting of a Painted Turtle for the year, sunning on a fallen branch in the wetland
The woods along the wetland are definitely greening
The creek is getting festive, too
