Our colony of ladyslipper orchids started blooming and will last through the weekend.
The wood frog eggs hatched a week ago the the pools are full of tadpoles. They are dark in color and cluster where they seem to be happy, or maybe just warm and well-fed. The salamander egg masses are a little ragged and colored by algae, but it’s easy to see the developing larvae inside. They’ll hatch soon. I will post when I see it. The photo shows both frog tadpoles and salamander eggs. Flowers are coming too fast to count, or for me to identify. Today look for dogwood on the field edges, amalanchier just in the woods, fruits, and strawberries in many paths. The orchids are leaving up and will be out soon.
