Seeds in the Wind

March winds bring April showers and April showers  bring May flowers.  So far, the winds of March have been true.  A noticeable change today in the number of trees budding out.  Slowly Mother Earth is springing back to life.

 A Carolina Chickadee was aiding in the dispersal of cattails that have gone to seed.  Every time it would pull at some seeds to eat, hundreds of seed would get caught in the wind drifting for long distances.  It is easy to see how and area gets a dense population of these plants in a relatively short time..
