Mild Winter Walk
It wasn't exactly warm on Saturday, but it was above freezing and sunny. Compared to what February could be, and usually is, a fine day for a walk. My route took me within sight of Busse Lake, which is part of the Ned Brown Forest Preserve.
The white on the blue is ice. In more normal winters, ice fishing happens on the lake. I doubt that there's been any at all this year.
It's still very much winter, though. The trees are still waiting. A warm winter isn't enough to get them to leaf.
Winter hasn't been harsh, but spring won't be any less welcome for all that.
