Just a hint of green

Spring is here technically but it’s still pretty chilly. Sunday I went out in search of signs of spring. The first spring green I found was the very healthy moss growing on the fire pit. It was spring green the color, but a very winter-y sort of growth.

From a distance there doesn’t seem to be much green in the woods.

Brrr: The first day of spring wasn’t green and bright.

Looking closer, I found a few brave leaves starting to emerge.

Naturally the stinging nettle was the most lush!

I spy with my little eye…

A teeny-tiny, baby frond.

I’ve had a fern obsession this past week. My maidenhair fern is getting new fronds, and it is fascinating to watch them emerge and unfurl. For perspective: the pine cone in the photo below, beside the baby, is about 3 inches long.
