I almost feel guilty with this week’s photos. You see, the color was green, and it’s spring here in NC, so as soon as the snow melted last week we were back down to daffodils, blooming forsythia and every shade of green imaginable. No. You don’t understand. I’m from the Pacific Northwest I THOUGHT I knew what green was. Everything’s sort of a blue-ish green. Blue spruce, blue-green Puget Sound, dark green fir and hemlock, dark green oregon grape… green (if it wasn’t grey!).
Then I moved out here. In the spring. Which supposedly starts in February when the first crocuses and daffodils bloom. And peonies. Well, you saw what happened to my peonies this year. The daffodils met a similar fate, although they are tired and still pushing along.
So. Green. Every shade imaginable. On my way home from work today I passed a grove where I swear there are at least 30 different shades of green in a 10 by 10 foot patch. Many of the yellow-greens that for a long time I believed lived only in my Crayola box, and not in nature.
And just because I intended these to go in the yellow post and was thwarted by snow from taking them…
So on to the pretties! As usual, you can click to make bigger. 🙂
