I DON’T KNOW IF ANY GREEN is more vibrant than that of spring, especially here in rural Minnesota.
Green in the landscape after months of grey and white and black dances a visual delight. It’s as if our eyes cannot get enough of lush green grass and the tight buds of leaves unfurling in flashes of green that sway to the rhythm of the wind.
Soon seeds sown into black earth will erupt in rows of corn and soybeans like a precision marching band overtaking fields.
The beat of the seasons begins. Planting into growing into harvest. A familiar rhythm in this land I love.
