Well after a day in the woods looking at high ground and low ground I couldn't even come home with a tick. Observations for the day were, the high ground the may apples were 5-6 inches tall. In the low ground only 1-2 inches tall. On the high ground I did see one salamander but no snakes or box turtles, in the low ground no reptiles. Lots of people mowing grass, but not cutting down the tops of dandelions. After the rain the last couple of days moisture is in the ground, but the rain took heat away from the ground. Truman Lake water temp. at the damn is only 50 degrees, which is progress from my last report but still 8 degrees away from the start of the season. Happy Easter to All, may your eggs be large and colorful!
