Green of spring

FernsAs quickly as winter left, spring has arrived.  Minnesota spring-time is short and condensed.  It’s almost as if you can watch the flowers come up through the thawed and warming ground.  Our lilacs are bursting forth, the peonies grow inches overnight, and the greenest of ferns have started to unfurl.  From a tight bud to the gentle arches, they are a study of delicateness and beauty.  Soon the fronds will be straight and upright, but I love the soft curves that they now show.
