The Glint of Green

“Yesterday the twig was brown and bare; To-day the glint of green is there; Tomorrow will be leaflets spare; I know no thing so wondrous fair, No miracle so strangely rare. I wonder what will next be there!” ~L.H. Bailey Budding Trees    

“The woods put forth their blossoms”

The woods in Spring   “Now every field is clothed with grass, and every tree with leaves; now the woods put forth their blossoms, and the year assumes its gay attire.”  (Virgil)

Pink and green on blue

What a lovely contrast between these two trees budding out in pink and green against a cloudless blue sky… Spring heralds the return of the sun’s warmth, the renewal of life, and the reappearance of green and color everywhere. (Jean Van’t Hul)
