My contribution to Michelle's Nature Notes (#370). Lots of weeds and thistles and such in front of the Cacapon Mountain house. I started weed-whacking, but stopped for the weekend. And now it's pouring rain. Maybe just as well, since it's tiny toad heaven. Note that both of the Cercis canadensis have leaves now, as do the two in D.C.
My camera (and I) aren't always great at replicating colors. Pictures of Lake Siri with the sun behind me work out great, though.
Mrs. Red-winged Blackbird didn't think Theda and I should be walking by the pond above Lake Siri, at all. And she let us hear about it!
I've posted pics of the tiny toads. The rain brings the frogs to the front yard, too. But they're a lot quicker!
Mouse over pics for captions, and click them for larger versions.
