Spring Has Sprung!

The naked earth is warm with Spring,
And with green grass and bursting trees
Leans to the sun's kiss glorying,
And quivers in the sunny breeze.

~Julian Grenfell

♪ ♫ It's Beginning to Look A Lot Like Spring ... Everything is Turning Green! ♫ ♪ ... Okay, ... I won't sing BUT on a gorgeous day like today, when the first of the Trembling Aspens (Populus tremuloides) begin to burst with new green leaves, it's hard to resist not breaking into tune!!  I love days like this out on the prairie!  You can literally watch it transform into a colourful landscape.  The aspen groves appear to take turns 'exploding' with colour, like an audience performing the 'wave' in a coliseum!  Everything seems to 'reach' for the warmth of the sun and smiles by bursting into colour and life!  Have a fantastic weekend everyone!
