Every few years we get a break and have a winter without a lot of snow. We had one big blast of snow this past October and a little bit last weekend. I'm hoping it stays mild the rest of the season. In the meantime, we're enjoying the early signs of spring showing up around us.
During a walk today, we found some new skunk cabbage sprouts. The water was so clear you can see the roots and leaves as well as the reflections of the sky and trees above. The water has an abstract look to it.
And tucked in a sheltered, sunny corner we found some ferns already unfurled, peaking up from the leaves. The ferns in our yard are still not visible. More photos to come this week as well as a new painting. Enjoy the rest of the weekend!
