Alders blooming along the upper Hudson

Today I took my son fly fishing along the Upper Hudson at North River in the Adirondacks and along the banks of the river the alder catkins were blooming.

Also seen were the white fruits of poison ivy and the capsules of evening primrose, highbush cranberry fruits were still hanging on too much to my surprise.  The ice was still along the meadows at South of the Glen but it is getting sparse and thin.  See photo.  An early sedge was producing dark male spikes on the banks but I couldn’t make out what it was yet.  It was a beautiful day but very breezy. – Steve Young
