Signs of Spring
We have a large multi-acre pond on the edge of our property. The female snapping turtles travel in the spring looking for a place to deposit their eggs, and this one was around our barn today. She's about the size of a very large serving platter.
Daffodils are the hardy signs of good weather. We created this raised garden with eros boulders to display spring bulbs.
At this latitude April weather vacillates from 80-degree days to 40-degree shockers. Fortunately, the flowers don't mind.
