Signs of Spring

We are experiencing very warm temperatures as of late in southeastern Nebraska.  Pictured is a piece of deadwood that I collected in Wyoming last year.  It's over a foot wide.  I believe it's an old section of a Rocky Mountain Juniper trunk, due to the fact that the area where it was collected is covered in this species and there were many RMJ's still struggling for life with similar twisted trunks.  I thought the snow melting from the deadwood into the natural looking section of ice resembled a mountain/stream scene.
