Color of the day: green!

Just today, it seems that suddenly bare limbs are coated with leaves in that fresh yellowy green color that is my favorite hue in all the world.

We're surrounded by a sea of leafy green!

It's impossible to stop smiling when you're surrounded by green. 
Don't you feel it's the happiest of colors?

Everything seems so fresh... so alive in spring.

Forgive me for gushing, but there's something about the scent of plowed damp fields and bursting buds and leaves that makes a me a little spring-crazy. 

And grateful I live in a rural valley.

The first buds of sour cherry and white bleeding heart and the wild orca pear are out this morning and new patches of violets are springing up like weeds.

Even the dandelions and clover seem to be celebrating the blue sky.

 Couldn't you just do a happy dance around the kitchen, or better yet the garden?

It's the crazy getting-ready-for-another-New York-show season around here. 

The to-do list is crazy-long. 
And yet this color of green makes me feel that somehow I can, I will, I'm stuffed with ideas!

Spring-time is the season of newness, of hope, of emerging leaves and ideas. 

Spring green. Best color of them all!

Can't you almost feel your inner self budding along with the leaves?

I love your post this morning. We've also had a beautiful green spring. The Bluebonnets are more beautiful and plentiful than ever before!! We've been working in the yard of our cottage. My hubby even planted some potatoes and beets. Everything is beginning to take shape. I love Spring! Much success to you with your creative ideas. Can't wait to hear more and see what you have done.

That spring yellow-green is my favorite color, too! You just have to be happy when you're surrounded by it.
