The sun is out, the snow is gone, and flowers are finally blooming.
So what better way to mark the beginning of Spring than to enjoy the beauty of bluebells?
That's what a number of people did at Carley State Park Saturday morning as they took part in the Bluebell festival.
Some of the activities visitors could take part in included: making Mother's Day cards, trout fishing, archery, and a taking wildflower walk.
To some, the bluebell is the signal that spring has arrived.
"The bluebells are normally pretty spectacular," said Jeremy Darst with the Department of Natural Resources. "They're a little delayed this year, our winter lasted a little longer than it normally would, so our bluebells aren't full on but anybody that's watching this: they're probably going to hit peak probably in the next week or so."
Darst said his is also a time of year where Carley State Park gets other beautiful wildflowers.
