I was surprised to walk outside last week and see these two vivid green leaves laying on the deck. They really stood out amidst all the winter grays, taupes, and browns that I saw everywhere else. So, of course, I had to take a picture of them!
"Nature will bear the closest inspection. She invites us to lay our eye level with her smallest leaf, and take an insect view of its plain." ~ Henry David Thoreau
