My Season of Green

It's started.

The fiddle heads at the water's edge. The buds on the trees. The flush of green grass after all the rain.

This is my happy time. These long, greening days. Watching birds descend on the field (along their migration routes I'm assuming). One day it's a flock of dark eyed juncos. The next week is robins, hundreds of them convening in the meadow.

I walk in the woods with the kids (sans the cat). We marvel and notice the small signs of spring, before green in all her verdant glory will burst in a mid spring riot.

These tender greens are spring's promise. Innocent. 

In the evenings we listen to frog and bird calls. Love songs.

My season of green.

    It's so nice to get to relive spring two months after ours started....would you like a sprig of summer to go with it? I can send you some of mine!

      No actually, I'm in no rush for summer. Spring is fleeting and now that things are greening it's racing along as it is.

    I just ate my first fiddle heads this year! Yum. The buds have already turned to leaves around here, but I'm still enjoying the cool evenings and warm days of spring.

      You know, we bought fiddleheads at Blackies once to eat in spring. And I totally did not like them. Then last year when we were moving someone brought a meal that included fiddleheads and those were good. There's so many where we live, we could harvest and eat them but they're not my favorite green.
