Spring is here

Beautiful, unseasonably warm weather last week here in the Hudson Valley (70s yesterday).  Vernal equinox occurred over the weekend - the Sun is now passing over the equator and moving into the Northern Hemisphere as we now are tilted more toward the Sun with each passing day.

Built a fire last night (fire ring in my backyard) and sat outside listening to the calls of the spring peepers (Psuedacris crucifer) and wood frogs (Rana sylvatica).  Today will be chilly and rainy - normal March weather - but more beautiful days are coming.
