“You can cut all the flowers but you cannot keep Spring from coming.”
― Pablo Neruda

I came across this small shoot, growing from the moss at the base of a tree earlier this week. Though I have no idea what type of plant it may eventually grow into, it was a curiosity to me, especially given it has, what appears to be, as single leaf. The sprout seemed out of place and there did not seem to be enough soil under the moss to sustain it, yet there it was.

Based on the nature of my subject and the colours in the background the image simply said “Spring” to me.
