Wearing of the Green

 Spring is in the air; and, the woods in North Georgia was definitely celebrating Saint Patrick’s Day with the wearing of the green this weekend.  Saturday was a wonderful day for a walk in the woods..

The oak leaf hydrangea leaves are just beginning to unfurl, revealing their beautiful soft green.
                      This little garden angel is cozy in her mossy coat.


                   Woodland sculpture created by the passing of time.

Soft carpet of moss at the base of a tree.

                                      Ferns pushing up delicate new fronds

The woods was wearing a few other colors as well.

I love this delicate little Rue Anemone.

  But, for me nothing shouts Spring like the pink of the Redbud  and the yellow of Forsythia

 Spring, a time of rebirth, a time for new beginnings after the stillness of the winter rest.
