Colours of March 2012
Checking out the fields behind our house. You can see the pasture in the foreground is still dormant, but something at the very back is starting to green up. I swear we have trees ready to leaf out already and that doesn't normally happen until May around here. As long as the pear trees don't flower early, it's all good. With a pretty much guaranteed chance of frost yet this spring, I'd rather not lose the pear crop this year.
I love the fresh, bright colour of the greens on the pine trees in the spring. Against the blue sky, it is a most beautiful colour combination. Later in the year, those greens will seem much darker and dull.
