A Second Look--April 10, 2013

We've had unusually warm weather recently and new things are sprouting and blooming every day. Some of the crocus are still flowering, and we have had three different varieties of daffodils bloom so far. The deer are enjoying the tender shoots of the growing day lilies (darn). The bluebird has come back and sits on top of the bluebird box from time to time. One time it actually went inside check it out. However, still no nest.

Here's what I found this week during a Second Look.

Purple crocus with insect in pollen.

Day lilies eaten by deer.
