the importance of to-be-revealed messages is trumping the aesthetic needs of the blog and the short weekend hike in the woods of nolde. and now i would love to start talking about a third subject but having created such a good cliffhanger...
the message lost in the first photo relates to the fact that it will be almost 2 months later and i will not have found any evidence of spring in the woods*. in other words, one swallow maketh not summer.
it is not a swallow peeking out from the snow!
contextualization nailed again.
furthermore: in a company of old and so last-season there is an even tighter pack which has had it worse.
*look out for a post on the apalachian trail hike sometime in the last days of march
