It's finally starting to look like Spring here. The weather has been cooler than normal and all the blooming and sprouting was at least two weeks late, if not more. We finally warmed into more seasonable temperatures, and then last week we had a three-day heat wave with temps into the low 90s (around 33º C). It seems that May has brought it's traditional flowers despite the late start to the season. I went wandering this morning and I've brought you some sights of Spring.

This Dogwood tree is up the street and around the corner from my house
Lots of birds are back for the season, including this Gray Catbird in the Dykeman Spring wetland
The Lilacs are blooming and scenting the air
This magnificent ornamental Cherry is next to the old hatchery house at the Dykeman Spring
The Wild Mustard is up and blooming in the upland meadow in the Dykeman Park
