Shades of Green

I long to look outside and see shades of green.  For those of us that live in a cold climate, we see an awful lot of gray.  But now that the first of March is here, Mother Nature promises that the worst is over and that Spring is "the next big thing."  Hallelujah!   

I've been scouring the garden catalogs (Burpee, Gardener's Supply Company and White Flower Farm) to soothe my green thumb.  I am making a list and at the top is some Bombast Rose Poppy seeds.  Remember when I discovered this plant in England?  I can only hope they will thrive in my zone.  Fingers crossed!

In the meantime, let's get lost in the million shades of greens in my photo above.  I took this picture a few years ago on a farm and can almost picture Kermit swinging on that swing.

I think we are all ready for Spring! PS: Great picture of the tree, grass, and swing!
