I realize that the calendar declared Spring to have begun 20 days ago, but the trees denied that Spring had "sprung."
Today, I drove a country road or so and saw wondrous visions that Spring has truly arrive.
First, I saw that a green haze – somewhat like a mist or fog, but not wet – was draped over everything. Everything seemed muted through this green haze.
Next, I noticed that the woods were filled with large trees lavishly sprayed with a green fringe. This is a lovely “Spring green” or light green. Not the deep hue of summer. What a beautiful site to behold the unfurling of leaves on God’s majestic trees.
And then I noticed that the woods were abounding in naturally occurring Red Bud and Dogwood Trees. Folks have graciously planted lots of these in their yards as well and this is a beautiful site to behold.
All-in-all, my ride along the highways of North Carolina was restful, pleasant, and joyful.
How was your ride today?
