I have often blogged about how much I miss seeing open water during our long, snowy, and icy BC winter. Lately we have been going through a warming trend when the temperatures have risen above the freezing point and as a result the snow that was covering my pond has melted, leaving water pooling on top of the ice.
While it is not exactly the open water I have been looking forward to, at least it is reflecting some of the sky, which is one of the joys of open water. It will probably be another month, at least, until the ice melts, but for now, it is nice to see the reflections when I look down at my pond.
