We're up in Connecticut for the first time in 5 weeks; it's absolutely GREAT to be back. Funny weather this weekend: yesterday was over 70 with clear blue skies and today it's back in the 40's with drizzle off and on all day. I had the chance to get out and take some pictures of stuff starting to bloom. Pictured above is a blossom from the cherry tree we have; it's just starting to bloom and should be at peak when we are back next week. The birds are getting active again too. Strangely enough there's been a huge flock of chickadees around all day long. Chickadees are fun to photograph as they will let you get quite close to them.
