How quickly the eye adapts; adjusting to the new normal of a drought-ravished landscape; forgetting the wonders of spring! Although the promised abundance of rain has not materialized, enough has fallen to make a significant difference…
bright spring green of new foliage and new fruit…
new growth where there had appeared to be only dead wood…
amazing bronze of avocado leaves
and budding apricots
and hedge roses…
boysenberry vines re-emerging…
even small patches of grass becoming a lawn once again!
Are you also enjoying the gift of green???
