Peepers and (Wood)Peckers

IMG 8098

Last night as I opened the door to let the dogs outside for a final visit to yard, I heard them. Finally, our spring peepers singing in their froggy chorus!  What a  welcome and lovely sound that was. I did hear peepers at Duck Pond while on my walk at Skylands the other day but only for a minute as I first walked up to the pond and then they became silent. I opened the window when I went to bed so I could hear them and be "peeped" to sleep.

Through my open window this morning I was awakened by the repetitive robin and numerous woodpeckers drilling away on the trees. There was so much drilling going on that it sounded like a construction site! My goodness, I think Spring might just be around the corner! The warm temperatures that we are expecting over the next few days might just encourage the trees to pop.

A rather risqué title for your post, don’t you think??  wink  Actually saw some trees starting to bloom yesterday and the star magnolia looks about ready to pop.  And finally saw robins!  I think we are just about there!  Already 50 degrees at 9:30 this morning.  Can’t wait for the 70s we’re supposed to get tomorrow!!

C, uh oh. I can assure you it was purely innocent but now that you draw my attention to it I can see how it might come across risqué ! oops! Bring on the 70s!

P.S. So I changed up the blog title a bit. wink

Awww, I love those peepers. I do miss that sound. (No peepers in Notting Hill!)
