green rampage

Three perfect days in a row
Weather-wise,that is. Came back to the holler to find the brown and wilted leaves and bare branches covered over by rampaging green growth.
My boys tell me we had a frog-thumping rain while I was gone. The front moved out and left a trail of 40 degree nights and painfully perfect blue days. The hills are now so green they look like piles of broccoli illuminated from the side by neon light.
Close up, the bright leaves are still tender like salad bowl lettuce. Next month they will firm up and darken and summer will be official.

I'm glad to hear this! You'll still probably have the odd tree that won't maek it through the summer, of course. Although your growing season down there is so much longer than ours, maybe that's not true.
