With the return of warmer temperatures, finally, to our region, plants and animals are starting to come to life.  Everywhere I went, birds were singing, frogs were chirping and bees were buzzing.  Later, Cindy Crosby, a naturalist with a gift for writing (check out her blog-Tuesdays in the Tallgrass), took a group on a hike around the prairie and surrounding woods to discover signs of life.  It’s amazing what her experienced eye sees.  I took some time afterwards to sketch the super fuzzy pasque flower.  This is truly my favorite time of year.  Enjoy!
