Happy Squirrel - Williamston

I looked out the window the other day and saw this squirrel helping itself to the sunflower seeds in the bird feeder. It must have thought it found a great new free diner.

Spring Flowers - Williamston

It is the second day of spring, and it actually looks like spring! Mother Nature is at least one month ahead this year. I do not know if it will continue, but I am enjoying it while it lasts. Here are some photos from around my yard.

St. Patrick's Day - Grand Ledge

Saturday was the most amazing St. Patrick's Day I have experienced in a long time. The weather was beautiful, and I was around a lot of great Irish folks. Here are some photos from the parade in Grand Ledge.

Early Spring Day - Williamston

What a beautiful day today. The temperature was 75, and the sun was shining. It is very unusual for a mid-March day in Michigan. I took full advantage of the nice weather to go for a long walk. Here are some photos from the Michigan Nature Association's Red Cedar Preserve.

This is the entrance. It is not heavily advertised, so you have to know where you are going.

I am not sure what these are, but there were a lot of them coming up near the river.

This is the Red Cedar River with clouds reflected in the water.

There were a couple of kayakers enjoying the day.

I love the way the boardwalk seems to disappear into nothing.

Last photo for the day. This is the flood plain doing its job.
