The Earth is really waking up from a long winter’s slumber in my neck of the woods! The transformation is something I don’t take for granted. Coming from the Southwestern US, where the transitioning seasons is hardly noticeable; I wait and watch with childlike wonder as the buds appear on tree branches. I am delighted when green leaves spring to life.
As the landscape of our woodland yard breathes new life, I find myself wanting to spend every waking moment outside. (And we are finally having some weather that I can get on board with!) I’ve surely been missing the warmth of the sun and some Vitamin D!
Green is everywhere I turn. The peonies are coming along nicely….
Mint is popping up in the raised beds.
And oh, how the oregano is hard to tame! Even this early in the season.
I was surprised to see the delphinium shooting up through the wreckage of our relentless winter storms.
This Spring greening is a bit delayed here in upstate New York, but it is so very welcomed!
