A soft snow covered Fossil Gardens last night. A foggy early start today has given way to blue skies. This winter has been long and cold, but a morning like today, its easy to see the beauty in fresh snow, air and sky. The native gardens that surround the sculptures will soon be coming to life. I look forward to the first shoots of bluestem piercing through the surface. The ponds are iced over, but the waterfall continues to seep. Spring is on the horizon. The Bottle Monster's brown surface is a cool contrast to the sky, bottles and snow.
Last season's grasses tickle the feet of the Monster.
