The Sun is Finally Shining!

I think we are all a bit in shock. Even the birds and bees! The milkweed is blooming and the Monarch butterflies are beginning to lay their tiny eggs!
Ponds are full of lily pads which in turn are home to frogs, turtles and dragonflies. Can you find the green frog in this picture?
There's a painted turtle on a lily pad in this picture below. Look for its black back.
This cheerful yellow flower is St. John's Wort. It got pretty beat up by the weeks of rain but is still in bloom in some areas of the Cape.
We only have one cactus on the Cape and that is this prickly pear. It has these lovely yellow flowers at this time of year.
With the return of the sun should come a whole parade of flowers so come back soon! I'll be much better about posting now that the rain has finally ended.
