First Day of Spring 2015

Today is the first day of Spring 2015.  The exact arrival time is 5:45 pm Central Daylight time.  Every year I like to compare what is happening outside to previous years.  This year there is one big difference.  We usually have a lot of flooding in our marsh.  This year is very very dry.  The landscape actually looks like what we see in late summer.




This is 2013.  A lot more water that year.

If we don't get some rain, we will have very little water in a few weeks.  That drastically effects the wildlife and birds that appear every Spring.  Hopefully we will have enough left to attract our usual visitors.  Nothing out of the ordinary has shown up yet, but maybe I will get some good photos in the next couple months.
