I pulled out my bike today. Cleaned it up and took my first bike ride of the year. There is no green yet, but it is definitely spring. Look at this gorgeous burst of color against the dead grass stalks.
I think it is a Green Comma Butterfly. It was very obliging while I took pictures.
Oh and there were Canada Geese everywhere. I also saw a coot, some ducks and a lady bug.
Everything looks so dull and dead, but there is much life in there. I can’t wait until the grass starts growing.
