First Blush

A New Hampshire Journal

Late April, and flowers on the red maples bring a Spring blush to the woods


(In a “normal” winter/spring here, the lake would still be ice-covered until around April 25. This year the ice was out the first week of March)


Ice is out of our lake in mid-March, and the mergansers – common and red-breasted – are here in force, finding many small fish to feed on along the melting ice edge
