Ospreys at work in early morning light-

bird osprey new nest

Up before sunrise, this osprey pair is busy constructing nest in a new location… on the eagle mating tree at the mouth of Pomonkey Creek where it enters the Potomac River. Not sure the osprey have selected a good location for a nest. But we have a good view of the site so we will continue to observe their progress.

More than a little crazy!

Flowers Daffy + maple

Crazy daffodils plus crazy maple seeds make a crazy arrangement! A new way to mix and match and find your happy place! Everybody gets so excited about cherry blossoms. Maples are blooming at the same time!

Japanese apricots bloom in February!

Where else would a bee be but at Tudor Place, DC where spring comes early in February? I had no idea! My mouth fell open at the sight! It was definitely a banner year for this early bloomer. The fortunate tree and the gleeful bees took advantage of a shocking break from winter as temperatures hit the 80s. We stood there amazed, in a late February snowfall of pink petals.
