Spring on the Wissahickon

It has been an unusually early Spring, but even without a winter to make it welcome, it has been delightful so far. With the mild temperatures of the last few days, flowering trees are bursting, such as the "shad" trees ...


Along the river, we at first thought we were hearing the background noise of Philadelphia traffic, but listening more closely we realized that the American Toads were busy singing, and doing what they need to do in the Spring ...


Along the warm slopes of the river gorge, wild flowers were in bloom, like the blood root and the lily ...



Good Spring!!
