You don't even have to the choose the sepia effect to obtain this photo! With only the smallest patch of snow left, the vista is dominated by shades of brown and the shades of plants past. Today I found many open seed pods of last year's milk weed. The result I hope will be many happy monarch butterflies this summer.
There is color emerging but the long view doesn't show it. If you study the ground you are walking on, you will find the greenest mosses to cheer you up. And Garrison Keillor makes me laugh every time with this definition: "March is the month that God designed to show those who don't drink what a hangover is like."
