Fading winter

The landscape pictured here is covered with a field of Virginia chain fern during the summer months, and, although some may think it’s depressing to see them covered with cold, white snow, I am sad to see that this area currently lacks snow.  The winter in Ohio is moving fast and we’re already experiencing the wild temperature fluctuations associated with spring.  Although we may receive a couple of major snow falls before summer arrives, they will likely melt quickly, leaving behind a depressing landscape of brown, salt-covered, mud.
