Wow! it has really been a strange spring. Almost overnight the temperatures jumped into the mid 70’s and it even hit 80 degrees. As I mentioned in an earlier blog  I’ve been out at Hoffman Hills checking to see if the geese returned to their nesting grounds. The transformation of the area if a few days was remarkable. The Willow Trees were yellow one day and a couple of days later they were green with leaves. The trees were without buds and a couple of days later they had buds and beautiful spring colors.

I couldn’t believe the changes in the Pussy Willows. They were at peak bloom early and in a few days were past peak.

The photo on the left shows a Pussy Willow at peak bloom. Three days later I was in the same area and took a photo of the same branch. The photo on the right shows the changes in just a few days.
