Green is a fascinating color.  In spring when you look across a valley, the different shades, hues of green never end.  Green is the one color that matches itself, no matter what.  In a garden the varied greens all go together, there is never a mistake.  Lime somehow looks good with blue green hostas.  Dark forest looks good with grass green.  Fern and pistachio......

If I was a color, I would want to be green.  It is the color of new life.  Tender shoots sprouting, poking, becoming.   Green is hopeful.  

It's time to go pick a bunch of pussy willows and put them in a jar on the table, celebrate what we know is coming.  Look forward to it.  Anticipate it.......plan for it.  Walk towards it, see it coming!
Enjoy the handoff from winter.....

Yes Spring is coming, the buds on Marsha's fruit tree's are getting plump, and I am eyeballing the Rhrubarb patch each time I go to Jerome, a few days ago saw some peeking out of the dirt, so yes there is Spring in the air. We can hardly wait.
