Well, we can finally say ‘Adios’ to Winter, and a big welcoming ‘Hello’ to Spring!
Living lakeside.., the one true sign that Spring has finally arrived is the Loons’ call. The last couple of years they have returned just days earlier, of the ice out! When they arrive back, its like an airshow! They seem to circle around the lake, calling all the while on the fly! Whether making a grand entrance?, or coordinating a place to land?, their call is a soothing sigh of relief that winters’ wrath is in the record books.
The maple season was very late this year, collecting & boiling the sap, in mid to late April!
The ‘Iceout’ was April 29th, with some small areas of ice still remaining, in some protected bays!
