Overwhelming green...

A wet winter and spring has (finally) blasted "drought" conditions throughout South Carolina (for the first time in quite awhile). 

Drought and prospective drought has been on the radar for most of the last decade and a half, so this is definitely a welcome change.  Exceptionally wet spring conditions seemed to have tipped the balance (plenty of rain in March and April) -- the 2 1/2 inches over the last weekend were the 'icing' on the cake.

The explosion of green leaves expanding is notable; there are wonderful greens of all shades in the newly expanding leaves.  And growth, as cells plump up with water, is palpable.

Please share your thoughts. I enjoy hearing from fellow nature observers, as well as whomever else drops by.
