The First Green Of Spring
I love when the first green begins to sprout on the plants. It just always seems like the birth of new life to me. Spring is my favorite time of year. Everything is warming up and the end of winter is here. The whole thing gives me so much excitement for the future. It cheers me up from my perpetual negativity and makes everything seem good and right.
I've been doing what I said I needed, and that is going out to the forest and just being in nature. Walking through the forest is my favorite thing to do, and I sometimes only realize that when I finally get out there.
This first green of spring now has me out trying to fix up the area around my house. I don't usually bother with that much. I like to keep things a little wild. It keeps most neighbors away, and I just like the way it looks. It reminds me of more natural places that I like to visit.
But this year I'm fixing it up. It gives me an excuse to be outside even when I'm at home. And I get to be out surrounded by all of the new green. The green in these pictures is just the beginning. Everything is turning green now. I love the new green. It's a different color than when it ages. My favorite time of year. I'll talk to you later.
