Fully Green

And the leaves were telling secrets to the wind.
                                            ― Peter Mulvey

The trees are full now as April slides into May. You cannot find a bare branch. Green cheerfully flutters everywhere. The wind rustles the leaves and makes them shimmer in the sunlight.

I like to hike along the river in the winter and burn in my mind the way the stark, spindly branches line the water. Then, I like to catch this place in early spring, when the leaves are bright and new and soft and extravagant.

When we’ve lived the bare days, we know to appreciate the beauty when it comes.

How about you? Are you seeing the green of spring yet where you live?

Cheerful shades of green. I’m with Dalettre and wish I could send some of our rain your way.

Oh my, living on the gulf coast, I’ve seen green for a few months now and I love the color of green in the spring, the best shade of green there is!

It is great seeing green again. We still have a lot of bare branches here in Ohio, but there is more and more green each day.

Very green here, too. Seems almost like it happened overnight!

So many wonderful shades of green in that photo –just beautiful! I was just thinking the same thing today –i.e., that all the branches are no longer bare, but dressed with green leaves already.

Love to see the green. And, yes, finally our nature decided to wake up and slowly everything is turning green here in northern NJ, too 🙂
