It’s starting to look like spring around here. Slowly that is. After our lovely day on Saturday when we went to the Rochester Public Market, it’s been doing nothing but raining ever since. But that’s what spring is all about isn’t it?
Of course, they are calling for rain on and off all this week too. Oh well. You know how the saying goes….April showers bring May flowers.

Our pond is looking clear and healthy. The Koi have come to the surface to sun themselves. We also noticed that we have some wood ducks wandering around this year.
They’re so pretty with their giant pink flowers.

So we went out and bought a wood duck nesting house. They have already checked it out. So cross your fingers they’ll like the home we put up for them. I’ll let you know if we end up with little baby wood ducks wandering around.
The Hosta are starting to sprout. It’s amazing how big these get.
And we have a couple of Pileated Woodpeckers that hang around all summer long that are a force of nature. They are huge birds. They get as large as a large sized crow. I was able to grab our big zoom lens on our nice camera and shot these pictures before this one flew off. It’s amazing the destruction one wood pecker can do to a tree. We watched as this one flicked off bark like it was paper and he just pecked and pecked in search of ants. He seemed to have hit a nice lunching area because he did not leave this spot on the tree for a while.
