No, this photo wasn’t taken this year, but it’s the sort of day that makes you believe that these luscious, luminous greens aren’t far away! We’ve weeks to go here in Nova Scotia before Spring weaves her gown of green throughout the fields and forests, but today, at least, it seems possible.
“The wood is decked in light green leaf.
The swallow twitters in delight.
The lonely vine sheds joyous tears
Of interwoven dew and light.
Spring weaves a gown of green to clad
The mountain height and wide-spread field.
O when wilt thou, my native land,
In all thy glory stand revealed?”
– Ilia Chavchavadze, ‘Spring’
