Gratitude Monday–Green

The first few shoots of green have been trying to get growing.
We get plenty of deer in the yard and they find them before we do.
I understand. In their hooves I'd do the same.

But I did manage to find these Egyptian onion tops growing near the sidewalk in the front yard.
They are green and they are beautiful and I am grateful.

Deer will leave very little in our yard if we did not have a fence. There is a herd of 7 that pass through each evening grazing it all back.

Green. Last week was when the grass turned from merely green--in Kentucky most of it stays green all winter--to !green! We're supposed to get up to an inch of snow/ice tomorrow, but it won't last.

There is something so innocent and hopeful about the first signs of green and spring! (Or so I've heard--the drama of seasons changing is somewhat lacking in southern california.)

Good for you for capturing it!

Yay for green. We have very few signs of green yet - except I think I spotted a dandelion plant... must be spring!

We have green, and i am grateful. Also, i'm grateful for your sake that it's moving northward.

Thanks all. Green is good.

You're ahead of us with the green. It shouldn't be too much longer now.

Yes, green in grass has begun here despite the snowstorms and cold overnight temperatures. Its truly a blessing after the winter to see it beginning to catch hold of the plants. I suspect the crocuses will be popping up soon out there.
