Patches of green...

An excerpt:

     Every moment the patches of green grew bigger and the patches of snow grew smaller.  Every moment more and more of the trees shook off their robes of snow.  Soon, wherever you looked, instead of white shapes you saw the dark green of firs or the black prickly branches of bare oaks and beeches and elms.  Then the mist turned from white to gold and presently cleared away altogether.  Shafts of delicious sunlight struck down onto the forest floor and overhead you could see a blue sky between the tree-tops.
