Nice one John. Now I've got to remember what gallery my shot of ivy leaves showing through thawing snow is in.

Re: The Thaw Sets In

Hi John,

Nicely balanced, pretty much all gone here. Bizarrely our neighbours were cutting their lawn a couple of weekends ago!

Yesterday on the way to The Mall after work the snow was flying off the motorhome roof - for once the car behind kept a sensible distance!

I am always amazed at how the plants can survive under all that snow.
Hope the thaw continues for you John.

A simple but well seen image John and none the worse for that.
I like the contrasting textures help by the positioning of the sun.

Not bothered though it was a pain "manicuring" it anyway,all those years ago.
