All I need to know
I learned from the Easter Bunny!
Don't put all your eggs in one basket.
Everyone needs a friend who is all ears.
There's no such thing as too much candy.
All work and no play can make you a basket case.
A cute tail attracts a lot of attention.
Everyone is entitled to a bad hare day.
Let happy thoughts multiply like rabbits.
Some body parts should be floppy.
Keep your paws off of other people's jelly beans.
Good things come in small, sugar coated packages.
The grass is always greener in someone else's basket.
To show your true colors, you have to come out of the shell.
The best things in life are still sweet and gooey.
May the joy of the season fill your heart.

The Red-wings are back! The Red-wings are back! It was a joyous day around Bon Bon Pond as we welcomed home our beloved friends. A half a dozen males arrived early this a.m. When I opened the front door this morning I was greeted with their distinctive trilling. What a wonderful sound! My eyes immediately went to the top of the cedar trees and there they were in all their glory, singing a song of joy for all the world to hear.

This is insane! A quick review of the Reflections’ archives shows the following facts from last year:
- March 8 Canada Geese return.
- March 15 Buddy the woodchuck appears.
- March 15 Red-winged blackbirds return.
- March 18 Hooded Mergansers fly in.
- March 20 Trumpeter Swans return.
- March 23 Eastern Phoebes fly in.
I am constantly amazed by the wisdom of wildlife. While it’s understandable how the geese, blackbirds and others who don’t migrate far know when to return, how can we explain the long distance travelers? For instance, Phoebes winter in the southern US and along the coastal region. How can they tell whether Minnesota is experiencing an early or late spring? Only God knows for sure but they deserve our respect and admiration and awe.
