Hello Houston, we have...bare patches! Last year's wintergreen and fallen leaves are looking beautiful as they emerge from the snow pack.
Spring has had some delays and setbacks this year - snowstorms, arctic wind, ice. The snowshoe hare still needs its snowshoes to get around. I needed snowshoes (which I did not have) as I stepped off the path and sunk into deep snow trying to photograph the hare tracks.
I can still follow the wanderings of raccoons in the snow.
And the stream is still trying to shed layers of ice.
