I went down to the creek at peak high water and saw a water strider (Hemiptera: Gerridae) in the lee of my bench.

The rain continues and the creek gets higher. In this photo the path is covered, but later on the water rose higher. I took a series of photos showing the progression, see them on flickr: 1pm on May 5; 6pm on May 5; and 10:20am on May 6.

On a quick walk today, I pulled out more buckthorn (Rhamnus cathartica) seedlings, as well as Manitoba maples and wild cucumbers.

While out on my run earlier today, I noticed some cherry blossoms and some bright red growing maple keys (possibly Acer platinoides) growing in the ditch.
