Deep freeze had lasted... and passed. It is warm, above 10°C (50°F). And the Sun makes it feel like Spring. Fells is in Defrosting Mode. Streams dissolving their ice-coats. Burbling vivaciously... Translucent sculptures holding onto the rocks... Mosses are waking-up. Quickly absorbing water from the snow. Opening their teeny leaves to the Sun. Infusing the forest with bright tints of life... Lichens and Fungi refreshed. Tree Buds tightly closed... No, Trees will not be duped into the idea that this Winter is over.
