This post inspired by V.J.’s Weekly Challenge #51: Green
This was the view outside my home a few days ago.
The color green is everywhere.
Spring time explains it…before the heat of summer dries the grass to a crispy brown.
There is something comforting about blue + yellow.
I chose green as the color for my first bedroom-of-my-own when I was 11 years old. Emerald green carpet. Green diamond patterned wallpaper (which I loved, even though it aggravated the paper hanger). The only green in the house. A marked contrast to my sisters’ purple and pink florals.
The woods I explored. The leafy tree I climbed. The grass I sprawled out on. Looking up…studying cloud formations.
When I was seven…my favorite dress.

Spring is finally here. So says the calendar.
However, Winter’s damp cold dome of a sky has been holding on. Clouds blocking the sunlight. The budding…and trying-to-bloom…trees…that I look forward to every year waiting to shine.
Until today. The sun was so bright, I nearly blinded myself taking these photos. But totally worth it. It’s supposed to rain for most of the coming week, so it was now or…who knows when.
The row of Callery pear trees…in full bloom at long last…
Spring Is Here!

It didn’t take much for a group of 6 year old boys (and one little brother) to make excellent use of water.
In the backyard swimming pool…
Enjoying their own brand of fun…
One hot July afternoon…
While their parents partied nearby.
