“Then came the healing time, hearts started to shine, soul felt so fine, oh what a freeing time it was.”
Indeed, the entire world around me is greening. The bleak frames of the winter trees now show a soft bloom of pale greens and yellows, as buds begin to open and small leaves begin to emerge from their winter shells.
It’s a great time of the year, days, its warming, plants flower, and life returns to my world once more, the inevitable cycle of birth, death/rest, and rebirth continues.
Over the past few days, I kept walking past these delicate poplar catkins, just knowing there was a photo to be had, but the light was never quite right. Yet, this past weekend, soft sunlight prevailed and the image was realized, hints of surrounding greenery in the background and small splashes of red from the Red-Osier Dogwoods which are interspersed in this small poplar stand.
