The plum trees that grow all along the trail are in bloom right now and are spectacular. Aren't these huge for plum trees? This is where our trail starts, next to the baseball diamond.
I seldom have good luck taking pictures of birds. By the time I futz around and get focused they are long gone, but this morning we stopped to watch a pair of flickers guarding their nest. Here is the male. The nest is there on the left—very messy looking, leafy nest. Isn't he pretty?
I love my super zoom on my camera! Gerrie just got a camera like mine. She is going to love it.
When we got to the bridge over the creek we saw a group of rare, headless ducks.
Har, har—just kidding! They were regular old mallard ducks, busily eating something found at the bottom of the creek.
The Oregon Grape is blooming. Very sneezy stuff, but it is so beautiful.
Beautiful day for a walk. Do you really think it's going to snow? I can't believe it. Nah, they must be wrong.
