Birds are singing. Flowers are blooming. The forest is green again and everything is covered in pollen. Spring has officially begun. We have quite a few plants blooming right now. Here are just a few: Flowering Dogwood, Crabapple, Parsley Hawthorn, Mayapple, Redbud, Violets, Carolina Jasmine and Horsesugar. The weather has also been especially nice this week.
