This time of year, I'm looking for the first signs of green. There's not much that isn't gray and/or brown at the moment. The warm temperatures we've been having this week have me craving some sign of new growth or at least something colorful to look at. I found these outside the garden fence today..........so there's hope!

Searching for color
I would have a really hard time living someplace where there was little green and not many trees. Though I really, really dislike the heat that comes with our southern summers, I do love the lushness of the Kentucky landscape. I once knew someone who grew up in the west and she said she felt as though she was smothering here because of all the trees. She wanted long views to the horizon and the wind blowing all the time to make her feel at home. I suppose it's likely that we feel most comfortable in familiar surrounding....those we grew up knowing.
