Took a take-away sandwich to the park on Friday. Some of the trees were beginning to green-up across the river. I love this feathery looks that we get early in the season. ↓↓
Here is another glimpse across the river: humans and beast enjoying the warmth. ↓↓
After a time at the park, we dropped into a nursery that we were passing by. The whole roof (this is just a section) was covered with planters waiting for a good home. ↓↓
It's a little too early to adopt them yet, however. There may very well be frost this month. Probably not, but maybe.
The next day, Saturday, was also fantastic, so we headed off to see if we could find the Baird Trail off in the nether regions of the county. We did find it and had a picnic lunch where this ↓↓ was our view. After complaining ad infinitum of our brutally long and cold winter, would it be churlish of me to say that I was too hot in that sunny spot? lol

After Baird Trail and a fruitless attempt to see the quarry, we headed to Balderson to look around and get an ice cream cone. My bear claw was delish. But this ↓↓ picture is of an old-fashioned scale that I had never noticed before.
