This image was submitted to our photo pool by Anymouse02, who writes, "Still growing, ferns at low temperatures." It struck as a lovely way to start the new year – signs of life amongst the snow. While it's not clear at what stage of life this fern is at, seeing green reaching out from the frosty white is going to be our inspiration for the new year. How do you spell resilience?
