Over spring break I was able to get back into the swing of things in terms of fitness. It started out cold, but warmed up nicely by the end of break. I got in several hikes, which includes today when I, now back at work, took my students for a spring wildflower walk
My fitbit reports my progress for this week:
101,818 steps taken 145% of goal of 70,000
188 floors climbed 269% of goal of 70
41.83 miles traveled 120% of goal of 35.00
I am happy with that.
We met a couple of little wildlife today; this beauty
and this beauty:
The wildflowers are a bit on the late side this year, but there were a few newer blossoms out. Today's count included:
Bloodroot, which has just made its debut. I didn't seen any bloodroot blooms several days ago.
The Virginia Bluebells are just now starting to bud.
The Snow Trillium has gotten more plentiful in the last couple of days,
but the Toad Trillium has yet to bloom. It will have a small red flower on it when it opens. The bloom next to it is a Hepatica.
And speaking of Hepatica, it is one of my favorite spring wildflowers because it comes in so many hues.
And the Dutchman's Breeches have opened!
I love spring!
