I was pleased to see another sign of spring earlier this week: a Chipmunk in Bird Alley. Also on the same day , a small group of Grackles, although the Grackles are very flighty and I have not gotten any photos of them yet.
I have also been finding Canada Geese recently, and that is a sure sign of spring for me.
The tomato plants that I have started inside are stretching their flimsy stems towards the sun in my windows and they are gaining height each day. I have yet to find a Coltsfoot which is most often my first wildflower sighting. My daughter had one in bloom in her yard as of last week, but then her area often boasts the first Coltsfoot sightings. I have some that do grow in our yard, but that will be later. It is too early for mine to be in bloom yet, but I continue to check for it daily.

There are 63 covered bridges in the province of New Brunswick and I love finding them in those 'out of the way' places. I have photographed most all of them, with only about 4 or 5 yet to locate. I still have many photos yet to post on my New Brunswick Covered Bridges blog. If you would like to visit and see more pictures of Covered Bridges, just click on the picture above.
