I didn't have to go far to find the Forsythia in full bloom,
and even salmon berry bushes.
Iris and lilies are all poking out of the ground.
Pairs of ducks on the lake - hooded Mergansers here, but lots of Buffleheads too.
There is a small lake at the end of the strawberry patch,
But I don't wait for the ground to dry out to start the garden!
