Backyard Almanac: The Stories of Spring

Things are changing, and they're changing fast. And if spring is a story, then it's a quick read. "It seems like there's a new story about every hour," says Larry Weber of the constantly changing state of the outdoors during the month of May.

The list of what to keep an eye out for is a lengthy one; migrating birds, budding trees, baby mammals, basking turtles, unfurling fiddleheads, and flitting insects are only a few of what makes this month so visually dynamic.

If there's one thing Larry Weber recommends not missing out on over the next ten days, it's the wildflowers. Toward the end of May, several variations of wildflowers will be blanketing the forest ground. "No matter how busy you are, take time to get out and take a walk."

You can hear Backyard Almanac every Friday at 8:20am on Northland Morning.
