03.11.2021 WInter’s Warmth on LIngering Oak Leaves

After yesterday’s pig of a post, here’s a bit of late winter color from Harvard Pond.

It will be warm today as we approach the end of the season with mid 60’s today.  Not much snow or ice left here.

    It may be late winter color, but it reminded me of Robert Frost’s words about earliest spring:

    “Nature’s first green is gold,
    Her hardest hue to hold.
    Her early leaf’s a flower;
    But only so an hour.
    Then leaf subsides to leaf.
    So Eden sank to grief,
    So dawn goes down to day.
    Nothing gold can stay.”

    Looks like autumn more than March! We still have lots of snow in the hills, if you’re looking for some white. 😉

    The golden glow of warmer days to come! Excellent shot, Steve! It is amazing how long some trees keep their leaves.

    Beautiful and comforting warm, Steve. Is that the kind of winter over there now? It is snowing here today again…

    • For the moment it is, Ann-Christine. We’ve had a return of the chill today but it is only a few days until official spring and we hope that the weather will take notice of the calendar. 🙂 We do sometimes receive snow in April, like this, but it doesn’t last.


  7. Really beautiful, Steve. I sat and looked at it a long time, long enough to appreciate the lichens on the trees and the more subtle colors of the understory after paying tribute to the more spectacular golds and oranges of the scene.

    I suppose there’s a reason we call it warm light. It really does give that feeling. Interesting how quickly it’s been warming up here. Wouldn’t be at all surprised if the temperature dives back down again for one last splash, but we’ll see. Perhaps this winter is over.

    • I am not sure ours is a last splash, but it got real windy this afternoon and as the temperature dropped the wind chill became very shiver inducing. We’ve had snow in April so there could be more to come. But the signs are all there that warmer days are not too far off.


  9. Beautiful backlighting! What are the trees that still have leaves? Some of our oaks in South Jersey didn’t drop their leaves until spring. Looks almost like fall but I know spring can be like that.

    • Those are oaks. The two trees most dominant around here for keeping their leaves are oaks and beeches. Yes, spring does have some nice color before everything turns summer green. Thanks!
