This nearly monochromatic scene appeared in Childs Park on Sunday between the waves of a rolling fog that blanketed Northampton — fog brought on by a warm front that signaled the beginning of the end for our recent snowpack. There is something about this bereft figure, with weeping eyes and a carrot nose dropped out of reach, set amid a backdrop of deciduous metasequoia — a pine tree that loses its needles — that might be right at home on the Island of Misfit Toys.
