SPRING!!!!!!!!!!!
It was 75 degrees F today! And sunny! It was like night and day compared to yesterday, which was overcast and rainy and cool. The things I saw... and, of course, I didn't bring my camera, because it was midday. *sigh* I saw:

My first butterfly of the season - a fritillary

A slow-circling hawk, which cried out twice

What I thought were bumblebees coming out of the ground, buzzing... but they were beetles! Dirt-covered beetles that must have hibernated over the winter

And, what I was looking for (and, since it's going to rain tomorrow, I may have missed my chance to photograph), hepatica! (small light purple forest wildflowers that only bloom for a week)

YAY!

Oh, and anonypooh, that is so cool! I had no idea Adam Busch was going to be in "American Dreamz" as a cantor who becomes a contestant. But... I watched all 5 of the videos, and, is it me, or is that somebody else in the third video? It's not Adam! Why??? http://www.voteamericandreamz.com/vote.php

YES!!! I was thinking of him several times today. In fact (smacks head!), I meant to title this "Give me joy, tootsiemuppet - I have found the hepatica." *L*!

Give you joy of your discoveries, Mrs. Browlock!

Oh - I said that badly, didn't I? I did see some! But I don't know if the weather will be good tomorrow, when I can photograph it. *crosses fingers*

A lot of people seemed to get their Spring today - *S*.
