Eggs and Flowers

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.

We bought this land in 1978 and have been its stewards since then. We want other people now and in the future to be able to enjoy the land as we have.
