A solitary celebration.
Uvularia sessilfolia nods amongst its companions on the hillside.
A small huddle brightens a spring-fed ledge above the Meadows.
Wood anemone eastward at the Retreat Meadows.
Silver maples beaver-scarred but healing.
Recalling the cascades of summer.
Holding the shore, awaiting the return of spring.
With the end comes a beginning.
Bright resilience across the subdued landscape.
Bittersweet bespangles the underbrush.
