Life in the Undergrowth- Spring is Coming

It has been too long since my last post, but I am determined that I will keep my blog somewhat active as this winter begins to wind down.  Believe it or not, but within the next few weeks and months, Ontario will come alive again with all of the species that have laid dormant for the better part of 4 months.  Insects, reptiles, amphibians and small mammals beneath the snow will emerge and things will start to get very interesting for the nature lovers again!
