Greens


This week I went on a road trip to look for paw paw trees.   Actually Husband was looking for the trees and I was looking for Virginia scenery. We had time to visit the home of James Monroe, our fifth president, and the last of the founding fathers to serve in the White House.   We were treated to a most interesting tour of his restored home, told about some new archeological findings and toured the grounds.  Below are some pictures to show you how wet and green our spring has been.  How many colors of green do you see?  Click on photos for a closer experience.

I drove through Virginia in the fall, on the Blue Ridge Highway. There is some stunning scenery there. I hope you enjoyed your travels!

I call them the glowing greens, those fresh, new greens of spring.

Too many greens to count. That's what a beautiful, damp spring will do.
