I love this time of year and one of my favorite things about it is the glorious color of all the new young growth. I'm especially fond of the soft green and blue tips on the evergreens that line my driveway and overhang my studio. What is today soft and vibrant will soon harden into mature, often prickly, foliage. But today I could run my hands over the tender new shoots and find glory in the touch.
As I made my way into the studio I had to pause and look, as I always do, out my window and across the green fields of the neighboring farm. I am greatful for this view, the soft growth of spring and the renewal that I find in them.
