It was magnificent day in Bend as flora and fauna showed their colors in the brilliant sunshines. Rock chucks emerged to munch on the grass next to the Old Mill District. Blossoms bloomed on trees in the district as well, while daffodils danced in the cool wind from the north. At Drake Park, geese were out with their goslings and a pair of trumpeter swans chewed on the underwater weeds. All in all, an Earth Day to savor.
