It’s going to be 50°F and sunny today and lower 30’s the rest of the week…skipping all indoor chores all day.

Outdoor Discovery Preserve in Holland, MI
On Saturday my friend Kelly took me to a local nature preserve. It was warm enough for frogs to call for girlfriends.

Since there are only about 6 flowers blooming now I do expect a few honey bees to sniff around me on a sunny day. It’s good to smell nothing like a flower.

Spring in the most exciting time of year to me, but I’ll miss seeing the large animals as the underbrush fills in.

I probably won't be seeing turkeys everyday until late next fall.

Turkey hunting opens April 1st. I won't be seeing the regulars after that.
