It's not Winter yet according to the calendar, but we're not fooled; it's cold, the ground is hard, and although there's no snow on the ground the trees are bare and the world seems to be painted in various shades of brown and gray, with highlights of red and green here and there in keeping with the Winter holiday season. We're in a transitional stage, a sort of Winter/not Winter. A walk through the Dykeman Spring Nature Park today seems to emphasize that state.

|There's a little color here|
|Reflections in the north duck pond|
|A cold seat for this time of year!|
|A Wyeth-like view of the upland meadow|
And just to top it all off, a little Winter-themed music from the late Michael Hedges. Enjoy!
