Spring green

Within a one-week span, spring has arrived and broken through the late-winter doldrums.  Warmer temps and an afternoon of rain followed by clear sunshine has brought a burst of green all around.  The lawns have quickly changed from brown to green, blooming daffodils have been spotted in the neighborhood, accompanied by colorful crocus, and leaves are starting to be visible against the blue skies.  Our lilac bush has opened its lovely light green leaves to the warmth of spring.  Everything seems to be about two weeks ahead of schedule, yet no one is complaining.  Even the smell of green and spring is noticeable and welcome in the air this first week of April.

    Happy Spring. Fresh flowers and the simpllicity of the photo is great. We spent 4 days on Lopaz last week. Sun totally during the day and full moon at night. Photos yet to be downloaded.
