For the first time today the leaf buds are visible on many of the shrubs and trees. With a couple of warm days the leaves should appear and spring will have finally arrived. Last Friday I did some trimming on a maple tree and the sap was still running. Not too surprising because of the frosty nights.The usual assortment of birds including the bluebirds are nesting around the house and sugar camp. The most enjoyable is a song sparrow that sings its melodious song in the morning as the sun is rising.
