April’s instalment for The Changing Seasons 2016 challenge. A little bit has changed since March — there’s no snow. There’s just a slight hint of green in the brown grass, if you look closely. The deer are still around, because they get so much good food in the park. One wigeon couple is back in the duck pond, and all the cormorants are back at the Reversing Falls. Found those red buds on a tree today, I don’t know what kind of tree, but they looked pretty.
The water levels in the rivers are a little higher than they are normally, but wasn’t any big spring thaw, so no risk for flooding this year. We had one day of reasonably warm weather, but when I woke up yesterday morning, it was five degrees below freezing!
