During our long winter, there just isn’t any open water to see. My pond is frozen over and covered with snow, and so is the Fraser River. It makes me long to see some open water, probably as a sign that Spring is coming. The temperatures have risen above freezing over the last few days, and this morning as Skye and I walked around the pond, when we got to the outflow, there was a bit of open water running. To top off the joyous sight, there was also a clump of green moss to add a bit of color.
I am ready for winter to end, and I wouldn’t mind at all if this was a sign of things to come.
