And in the winter?

In the winter a fen's sea of color fades.  The preserve becomes more a study of light and contrast.  Back up along the trail, these dried mushrooms catch our eye with layers of contrast, without color at all.  So why not go all in?  And as I meet the fen again in the cold, I find Janis Ian running through my mind.  If I could sing -

And in the winter

Extra blankets for the cold

Fix the heater getting old

I am wiser now you know

And still as big a fool

Concerning you
