Foolishly I thought we might be done with winter here on the North Coast. Today we woke up to 3″ of wet snow. Guess we will be having a white St. Patrick’s Day! I was considering going shopping today for a pretty, springy Easter outfit. Two weeks away, there’s some chance that we might have a warm up by then. But for now I’ll keep my sweaters handy!
I took this photo last weekend at Concord Woods Nature Park, part of the Lake Metroparks system. Around the edges of the pond the ice was clear, well clear-ish. Bubbles of all sizes were frozen in the ice. While I watched more bubbles came up from the leaf litter covering the bottom of the pond. Was this from decomposition of the leaves or was there a little creature hiding down there?
Not much was moving at the park that day. Here are some more photos of the park and the beautiful blue winter sky.
