Signs of Spring

For the past couple of weeks, I've been enjoying signs of Spring.
Blooming forsythia
(with Benjamin & Edward, in Joe & Kathleen's yard.
I don't think Edward was quite sure of me at first, but by the end of the visit, he was cannonballing quite happily into my midsection- ow- so I concluded he had lost his initial shyness.)

A robin's nest outside my window...
(the bird has been working on it since February, but I haven't seen the robin herself lately. I hope nothing has happened to her)

And down at the Botany Pond on the south end of campus: turtles!
There are always ducks (no ducklings, yet) but the turtles are great fun.
I love the way they line up in a sort of Turtle Conga to enjoy the sun.

Three utterly fabulous pictures! Benny and Ned are darling, the lighting on the bird's nest is gorgeous, and the turtle shot is brilliant. You're so talented. I adore you.

How cute!
Some friends of ours here say they have turkles in their garden - they eat up pests.
