I had forgotten I’d taken these images last weekend. I even edited them to get them ready for a post.
The grass is growing greener every day and the buds have burst forth on the the spring blooming trees and shrubs. The leaves on the trees are beginning to get that beautiful pale green color and the air smells fresh and sweet.
It is Spring at last.
The trees are coming into leaf
Like something almost being said;
The recent buds relax and spread,
Their greenness is a kind of grief.
Is it that they are born again
And we grow old? No, they die too,
Their yearly trick of looking new
Is written down in rings of grain.
Yet still the unresting castles thresh
In fullgrown thickness every May.
Last year is dead, they seem to say,
Begin afresh, afresh, afresh.
~ Philip Larkin
It’s spring fever. That is what the name of it is. And when you’ve got it, you want — oh, you don’t quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so! ~Mark Twain
The grass is even greener now than when this picture was taken. As I walked by a window early this evening and happened to glance out, the green was just stunning.
After this terribly long winter of brown and white, then more brown, the green is so pleasing to see.
I love the bokeh I get with this lens.
These were all taken with my 50 mm. I’ve been using it a lot lately.
A friend and co-worker who is retiring this year and moving away asked if she could give me her Adirondack chairs to remember her by. How wonderful ~
I will miss her a lot. But every time I see these chairs, I’ll be reminded of our friendship.
And with that I’ll say until tomorrow, my friends . . .
