more signs of spring

In the last week, starting approximately a week ago, there has been several arrivals of spring things, even though tonight they call for a freeze.

The first thing that appeared after the last posting was the whiporwills. I have heard and seen them a number of times. I also have heard an indigo bunting, and a parula. I also watched a large, slow flying bat forage over our place one evening last week when it was mild. But that's about it. I have heard spring peepers down in our lower pond, but the upper pond has not had any thus far. That is a huge change from past springs, and I'm not sure why.

Our pear trees are in bloom and I'm hoping that the freeze tonight will not wipe them out. I don't think it will, but it depends how cold and how long the cold lasts. Hopefully not too long.
