Greening o' the Woods
Now every field is clothed with grass, and every tree with leaves; now the woods put forth their blossoms, and the year assumes its gay attire. ~Virgil
We decided to "concentrate on nature" (Aidan's phrase) this morning and check out the progress of our woods. It was amazing what a different place it was with its new green garb. Remember, our only personal experience with our woods is in its naked state--brown, quiet, resting.
But today it seemed to quiver with life.
Spring slips into even the most hidden places of the countryside and transforms them into mossy-green mansions of delight.
