28 February, 2010 gallery additions

Here in East-Central Illinois this long winter finally has an end in sight. Robins have been seen and heard, the snow is melting around little green daffodil and snowdrop shoots, and temperatures are rumored to reach the 50s this weekend! It doesn't hurt that we're in the first day of meteorlogical spring, either — it's a great psychological boost.

All of these factors gave me a kind of 'spring fever', so I searched through my photos for plants that just made me think green. Not environmentally-friendly recycling green, but the kind of green that soothes your heart and imparts you with a deep kinship for the Earth and all other living things.

I hope that you enjoy this month's selections and they satisfy, even if only for a brief moment, whatever yearnings for spring you may have. If nothing else, perhaps they'll offer a temporary diversion from those plant catalogs...

I'll see you all in two weeks with another update!
