The other day, we went swimming at our local workout center. There's a shortcut we use that goes through a desolated industrial area interspersed with mossy, swampy, brownish, greyish stuff.
But it's not supposed to be brown, grey or green now; it's supposed to be yellowish and covered in white snow. This is the warmest (and wettest) winter we've ever had, due to climate changes. Look, even the goat willow has its goose babys out (that's what we call them here - and yes, I agree, that picture is an excellent display of my great photographic skills - background sharp, motive blurred..)
The following night, the moon had two frost rings around it. Hopes were high.
