I recently visited Kirk Nature Park and was pleased to find that the wildflowers were in full bloom. In fact, I couldn't believe how many Glacier Lilies adorned the trail. At one point, it looked like both sides of the trail were carpeted with them. This area is very colorful once the flowers bloom. The insects that this park attracts are also quite colorful. I've seen Robber Flies and Snakes Flies out here. This time however, I spotted one unidentified beetle, or as I like to say Little Brown Beetle, and a couple of bumble bees on the hunt for nectar. Still, that was a good sign that spring had come to stay.
