Ice is out, grass is in

Some changes from the past few days here:

Rock Pond with lots of open water

Not two days ago all that open water was covered by ice.  We’ve had a few warm days, plus some rain, and now the ice is only a few chunks floating around the shady pats of the shoreline.

It doesn’t show so well in the picture, but some patches of our land are starting to get a little green fuzz on them as the seeded grass comes up.  It’s curious to see where the grass is popping first– some of it can be explained by sun and shelter, but other parts I’m not so sure about.

We still have traces of snow in our back yard, but that, too, is going fast.  Today we’re getting steady rain, which may well melt away the last of it.
