More for the day.

A multi-post day... and no surprise, given that it is over 70 degrees and sunny.  (Also, extremely windy, like face-burning-when-you-come-in-from-it windy).

New updates:
1.  Willows are leafing out.  Well, that may be an exaggeration, but the leaves are peeking out of the bud scales.  See photo.
2.  Some hazel catkins are greening and swelling (though some are still brown and closed) and elongating.  See other photo. 
3.  One friend reports hearing frogs (spring peepers?) but I have not been so lucky.
4.  One friend reports bluebirds in Mettawa (10 miles south? -ish...)
5.  Also, prairie burn season has apparently started.  Oak Openings is char black.
