Spring around the Mystic
Took a walk around the Mystic Reservation last weekend: it's amazing what there is to see that's new and different with each change of seasons.
Last fall, we were lamenting the dying leaves falling from the trees. We did, though, take comfort in the knowledge that stuff would spring back in the following months when they were good and ready:
Some sort of beech?
Buds that look like little locusts from a plant that most certainly wasn't a locust
And they call this a weed.
Potential goslings (I can think of no other place I'd rather be if I were an egg. Doesn't this look cozy?).
This fellow was either practicing or he saw something that looked appetizing near us. A couple times, he got a bit too close for comfort.
