Is white the new green?
It certainly looks that way to me.
The landscape is still awfully white in this neverending winter but I have been dreaming about green. There are evergreens of course, I've been looking at those all winter. Today I woke up and they were covered in new snow! In April.
I want to see grass green, leaf green, even pond scum green would do!
So I made it myself.
Years ago (over 20!) my new husband and I went on a road trip. One of the places we visited was L' Ile de L'Orleans in Quebec. There was a heat wave, I remember that clearly, but on this little island there was a breeze. We spent the day driving down rural roads circumnavigating the island and stopped to buy blueberries from the road side stand and purchase cold drinks in our barely adequate French. And to snap pictures. I was getting quite a collection of churches and barn photos. This was one of them.
A couple of decades later I sit in my own rural home and look out the window of my studio and see the evergreens and a lot of snow that does not promise spring as it should. And I take that hot summer day in my mind and make my own green.
