Early February 2012
It doesn't look or feel like February. Mallards are still finding plenty of water in which to swim and splash as you can see in the largest square, the photo taken last Saturday. And moving clockwise. one duck was circling, planning to land in the creek with the already swimming ducks.
Nothing sprouting here yet, which is perfectly normal. So all plants here are sporting dried seed pods and wrinkled berries. The ducks aren't worried about the unusually warm weather, but I am because I think we may have trouble with insect infestations this summer, something that often happens after a mild winter.
