Yes, we are going through a nice thawing process after a couple of weeks of below normal temperatures. On our walk at Ouabache Trails Park where we cross a creek during our walks we could see how the receding flood waters and the sun is melting the ice, a little.
Doesn't that moss shine like a beacon in the sun!
Along the creek you can see how high the water was before the water receded.
The ice shelf on the shaded side isn't going to let go anytime soon despite the higher temps.
The creek is opening. Just as well because we are to get a lot of rain in the next few days. There are already flood warnings out. The floods don't directly impact us except sometimes this creek covers the road and we can't walk our favorite trails.
At home our moss doesn't get as much sunlight but it sure is liking these warmer temperatures. The sporophytes are taking advantage of the warm damp weathers.
I hope you all are taking advantage of this warmer weather. Maybe I should say I hope you are having some warmer weather now. What ever kind of weather you are having I hope you get to enjoy the rest of the week.
