Awakening


Now is the time of the illuminated woods.......
when every leaf glows like a tiny lamp.

I love that Jo. Wish I could go out in the woods. Yesterday, 80 degrees, today nearly freezing. Back in sweats. Thunder, hail, lightning and rivers of rain, not to mention tornadoes. I'm sorry that it'll be heading your way. Guess we'll have to cover up, and have tea and read.

Oh, my eyes love looking at all the color on your blog. Our temps were in the 70s yesterday, but last night and today we've had freezing rain and sleet. Everything is still covered in a sheet of ice! Thanks for posting these lovely colors. It reminds me that Spring will come! :-)

I'm so looking forward to seeing the fresh green of the leaves - there are a few beginning to appear at last but most of the branches are still bare.

It is a beautiful scene. I hope your spring is coming faster than ours.

Everything is in bloom in the Pacific Northwest, but the temperatures are in the high 40s, low 50s. Cool and windy, not fun to be out and about. I love that green! :-)

Lovely . Spring has sprung here grass is becoming green and lush after lots of rain and spring storms and all the gardens are sprouting buds as are the trees and bushes , birdies are singing happy spring songs and gathering for nesting ! Critters are out and about and the air is sweet and fresh ! Thanks for sharing . Have a good evening !

Oh how I wish our woods looked like this.Spring is so late,there are no buds on the trees yet and no spring flowers.The temperature is milder this week,so hoping things will show some growth soon.
