The Starkness of Early Spring
March 29, 2010
Bare branches near Lake Champlain in Charlotte.
Now that the snow is mostly gone, I’m doing my best to appreciate the neutral landscape of early spring.
The stretch between March and late April in Vermont is always a toss up — it can be mild and sunny or frigid and snowing. This month we’ve had both extremes, with the temperature dropping from 60 to 7 degrees in one week (it also snowed somewhere in between).
Whether we get rain, snow or a heatwave in Vermont, we’ll be surrounded by brown grass and bare trees for the next several weeks. With that, I’m going to make an effort to enjoy this time of year. Because depending on how you see things, early spring can be predictably bleak or surprisingly beautiful.

Wow, that really sounds like some unpredictable weather!

Hi Erin. Yes, it’s been all over the place. I think we’re all looking forward to some consistent warmth and sun. By the way, I keep thinking about your photos of the Nantucket ship and the old man. It was such a moving story and your photos were really beautiful.

Love the filigree of the tree branches. When the leaves are off the structure of tree becomes clear.

Hi Hilke. Absolutely. Filigree is a perfect way to describe the branches.
