I was busy last weekend with concerts, and a lot has changed in two weeks. Perhaps the greatest transformation took place in the Robins nest, where four blue eggs turned into three little chicks.
A couple of less dramatic changes occurred in the woods, with the Black Cherry blossoms converting into tiny green cherries.
In a couple of short months these will be attracting Black Bears.
The bunch berries also came into bloom - red berries will follow next.
One thing that didn't change very much is the status of the Lady Slipper - this orchid has a long bloom period, and can still be found in many places - this one is blooming right beside the Yellow Trail, perhaps half a mile from the trail head in the Hamlin/Eames/Smyth conservation area.
