The snow is gone and the ice has melted, but now we are in that long period of brown and gray as we wait for the green to appear. Here is a photo I took the other evening as we walked around the pond. The dark grey clouds in the sky gave a nice contrast to the tan cattails that were still being highlighted by the sun. I am always so surprised at how fleeting such scenes are. A minute later the cattails were also in the shade and the whole effect had vanished.
