Animals we saw . . .
Flowers in bloom . . .
And signs of good things to come . . .
It looks like we'll have service berries and ground beans a-plenty this year. yum! (at least for the berries anyway.)
Other neat findings today were tadpoles, four different kinds of butterflies, and a toad that looked like it had barely missed getting eaten by a predator. It was hopping around with a big bite mark on it's back, kind of oozing a bit but not slowing the little guy down. Josh said toads have an amazing ability to heal quickly from wounds. Although it's possible he was just saying that to assuage my worries about the wee thing. It didn't appear to be suffering anyway, and I do have a great photo of the toad, but I thought I would spare posting it since people don't typically come here for photos of oozing wounds.
I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!
