Cirrostratus cover, breeze from the south. A few mallards on the lake, more swallows over it; sparrows, grackle; an unidentified pair fly and perch like small hawks. Many pink honeysuckle bushes coming into bloom, along with other bushes and low-growing plants, including Virginia waterleaf, which was one of the first plants to green up the creek side in the spring, and has begun to flower this week; and impressive stands of large-flowered bellwort in the woods along the sourthern and western banks. Dandelions are more conspicuous, in the open, if not more abundant; violets still flourishing. Creek barely an inch deep in places, current in pools hardly perceptible.
