Spring Critters in MD

It's unusually warm today for March--upper 70's. So when I took a walk around Greenbelt Lake on my lunch break, I expected I'd see these guys emerge: But I didn't expect to see this adorable garter snake already in the season: The snake was about a foot and a half long. Pretty colors. I saw several frogs all hanging out in the entry pond. And several turtles on this log and a few other logs in the lake. Canada geese hanging out with a pair of mallard ducks. And pretty wood ducks. Spring is on the way. And I am very grateful to walk where I can see all this. Two years ago today I had to take my lunch walk in the city, and on that day, it didn't go so well, and I got smacked onto the pavement. I am so glad to not be working downtown now, and that 2 weekdays I can walk around my lake because I'm working those days from home.
