Green things - Spring
Kara asked what a "deepening greening" looks like to me. I tried to capture it. Just this past week or two, there's a shimmer on the grass of life coming into it. You can't see the light that hangs over the still-brown hedgerows, promising green about to bud all over, but it's there.
I just spent a delightful couple of minutes at my kitchen window, watching a robin (with whom I was a bit annoyed, because he'd just chased off little Jenny Wren to another part of the garden) reveal why this patch has become so special to him. He began tugging at a strand of moss, tugged out a thread, then another, and another, until he had a fine clump of green stuff gathered to bring to his nesting spot at the top of the garden. I'll be interested to see what happens next.
