Spring 2020 - First Plants
Like every year spring arrived officially but around Montreal it will take a few more weeks until you notice the first messengers of the new season. Not seldom, another snow storm hits the region, dropping some snow or ice. Then around mid, late april, green patches show up and the first migrating birds arrive.
Suddenly, late april, a green explosion takes place and within days, abundant vegetation has built up covering the brown, dead plant residues from last year. And within the vegetation, an army of different insect species raised up followed by their predators turning the previously dead area into a buzzing field of fauna and flora.
We are not yet there though. Right now, only a few green spots can be found here and there.
