It was a gorgeous 60 degree evening in February, so we headed over to the fen. No beavers or frogs were in evidence, but the yellow winter aconite was blooming en masse. It normally waits a little longer for early spring. I took photos like a crazy person with seasonal affective disorder. Folks have reported peepers, other frogs, many species of salamanders, families of snakes, and wildflowers out much earlier than usual.
