It still looked like winter, when I drove "up the hill" to the mountains on Thursday, but not anymore. The soft greens, pinkish-greens, and pale greens of new foliage were evident across the landscape today.
I wished that I'd had an opportunity to stop and take a photo -- I had my camera, but coming down the escarpment is steep, and there's not really a pull-off opportunity.
But spring green is welcome, for sure, after an unusually long winter.
Interesting to search my previous blog posts for "spring green" (lots of similar musings, along with some outliers).
This was the most pertinent to what I saw today.
