Signs of Spring. Yes!

??????????????????????????

We knew, once the first toad had emerged, that spring had to be on the way to the Children’s Garden here at the South Shore Natural Science Center.

??????????????????????????

The squirrels, of course, had been active all winter. so it was no surprise to see one running around the garden during the spring thaw.

??????????????????????????

The fish, now, that was another thing entirely. But, then, there was A LOT of snow.

??????????????????????????

The rabbit made our hearts skip a beat, and made us know that despite the fact that the garden shed still looked like a frosted cupcake…

??????????????????????????

…spring was really on the way!

??????????????????????????

But mostly what got us was the glorious moment when the maple sap evaporator emerged like a spring woodland flower. It missed Maple Day, but there’s always next year! Welcome spring!
