Green Spots Among the Brown
It might be dry, but in some spots it's still green. It helps to have a pond handy. This is a view of the pond at the Ruth Macintyre Conservation Area in Schaumburg on Sunday.
Thirty-six acres, but if you didn't know it was tucked away among the houses, you'd miss it even from nearby side streets. Still green, as I said, but I did notice that the water level is down, exposing a few mud flats in places.
