It was so warm yesterday that the remaining ice broke into tiny shards along the edge of the pond.

Lovely warm day at the pond that no longer has the weird beach caused by the drought.

There is rain in the forecast, but what was once under water is now a new beach with 10 inches less rainfall than usual.

Walking in a new wooded area yesterday, when my dog insisted we go in another direction over rougher terrain, to be met with a mystical old forest now submerged. Happy Easter.

It’s the annual January Thaw with temps above freezing and snow melting rapidly. This spot shows a peculiar melting pattern.

I had to wonder if this was called Turtle Pond because there are lots of turtles that I did not see or if it was because this island looks a little like a turtle.

While looking for toads at a vernal pond, I found a bunch of tiny turtles sunning themselves on logs. All but one jumped into the water as I came close.

This limb had some of each growing on it as it was reaching for the pond. A summer like day yesterday, almost seemed surreal when we rounded a bend to find a pile of snow.

The water & ice on the pond reflecting the weather so far this month. One day warm enough for melting, another freezing as can be, and others have been in between days. Today falls in the freezing category.

This was taken on a sunny day at the pond- before all the snow fell upon us.
