Unfurl the Leaves!

Springtime porch sitting and watching the sun go down at the end of the day is a favorite past-time at our house. The open views through the woods allow you to see things that you would never be able to see once the leaves fill in. The openness also allows the sun to stream right to the spot where we sit and wait for our dose of vitamin D. After the winter, we have such an appreciation for even the smallest amount of warmth and find ourselves saying over and over, “I can’t believe how lucky we are!”

Once the leaves are out in full, it will all change. Yesterday was the first day that the delicate veil of green appeared in our vista view. Tiny little itsy, bitsy leaves are starting to appear. Dave poetically described them as green pearls hanging from the branches. Soon it will become a green curtain. Until then, we’ll appreciate every day that we get! – Wanda Boldon
