New growth

The woods behind our house run down in a gentle slope to a wet spot—it’s too big to call it a puddle, but hardly a pond. The forest floor has been covered up with green now. Higher up the slope it’s full of mayflower and lily-of-the-valley. Lower down it’s covered with pale green ferns. Up above the leaves have been filling out over the past couple of weeks so that now we have a lush green canopy in the trees.

We’re working at putting in a few trees of our own, as well. Over the past few days I’ve been digging holes in the back yard and today we went to the local nursery to pick out a couple of pear trees and a couple of cherries. Hopefully we’ll get them to grow and be able to enjoy the fruit.
