Hello Everyone! We are updating from the road today, as we are about a week into our annual Spring roadtrip. Right now we are in Kentucky and will be making our way to North and South Carolina in search of some warmer weather. The azealeas and wisteria are blooming here while in Ely the crocuses are just starting to bloom and the daffodils are only a few inches out of the ground. The lakes are still frozen but on the south facing shores of the smaller ones the ice is starting to pull away. Warmer temperatures and rain have helped the snow out in the open to melt but there is still a little in the woods. Some more very welcome signs of spring include pussy willows and maple buds. Mrytle Warblers, Ruby Crowned Kinglets, Song Sparrows, Fox Sparrows, Winter Wrens, Pheobes, Redwing Blackbirds, and Shoveler and Bufflehead ducks have also arrived. That’s about all the news we have heard from the Northland, but we will keep you all posted on Log Cabin Hideaways happenings when we return from vacation and make the transition into sweet summertime.
