Spring in New Hampshire

It is certainly spring!  The spring flowers are out and the peepers are peeping!  The pollen is also horrid! 🙂   I spotted this Jack-in-the-Pulpit flower the other day.  I rarely come across them in Boscawen.  I am sure the lady slippers are out too – but I have not gone to  where I know they are.  The bugs have been terrible, and I have heard the ticks are out in full force  (the vile things)!  One of my nieces was bitten and has lyme disease – they noticed quickly and she is on antibiotics so hopefully no lingering side effects.

I was mowing my mom’s yard last Friday and almost ran over this gray tree frog on the walkway.  I relocated it to the apple tree in the back yard.

He didn’t look too thankful that I brought him somewhere safe.  Gray tree frogs make a neat call – a very loud trill-like sound.

I also came across a female Hooded Merganser with about 6 chicks in a small marshy area on River Road in Boscawen.  The babies are so cute!

I can’t believe that it is almost Memorial Day Weekend!  Time certainly flies!  I hope all is well with all of you.  Enjoy your day!
