4.28 spring willow

Spring is here with a vengeance. The late cold, followed by the sudden high (for us) temperatures, means that everything is trying to bloom all at once.
The willow tree has bloomed and is giving us lacy yellow-green fronds. It makes a brave picture against the still slightly drab woodlands behind it.
At the base, you can see the squirrel who has decided the willow is big enough to make an emergency bolthole if the dog, cat, or neighbor threaten it. I'm not sure I believe this as the tree is only about 12 feet tall and is not close enough to other trees to make a leap practical. However, I'm not going to bother trying to convince the squirrel otherwise.
