Despite a couple of 60 degree days, it is still February and there isn't a lot of new growth in the woods. Without the layer of green, my eye is drawn to the patterns to be found in tree trunks, oak leaves, and bark.
I went out to the DeFries Calendar Garden on one of the warmer-than-usual days last week, wondering what was happening out there these days. At first glance, not much. It was a typical bleached out, frozen February landscape, with a few evergreens to remind us of color. But don't despair. Spring is coming -- my snowdrops are blooming!
