Waiting

I'm waiting for spring to awaken this vernal pool.
 It sure looks asleep yet. At least on the surface.

I'm thinking Monday will be the big night for the vernal pool.
I'll be there!

  1. Is it the spring peepers you're waiting for ?

    Why are they called vernal pools ?

    You didn't know you'd be home-schooling a senior did you ? ;-)

  2. Vernal = spring

    They usually only last part of the year. By late summer, most of the water is generally gone.

  3. Wendy, thanks for answering Sybil's question on vernal pools.
    Sybil, I'm waiting on spring peepers and wood frogs. Also spotted salamanders and other critters thast frequent vernal pools.
