Dogs don't mind the almost-spring chill.

Our river is gearing up for spring. The trees are beginning to show buds.
I don't understand the greenness of the water. Is it reflecting greenery we just don't see?
Must be. A most welcome color, green.
After all, ochre is the dominant neutral right now. This stump got a bit of a makeover this winter. One would almost guess a bear tore it open.
And Ellie finally took her first swim of the season. She didn't linger in the water long enough for me to frame a shot. In. Out, pretty damned quick. A good, satisfying shake.
And that was the official start of spring in Little Pond
