Shades of spring green

Thanks for your patience with my absence. I don’t know if I’ll be back daily or weekly but, for now, I’ve made several  photographs of tree leaves that I’m really excited about and wanted to share. The greens of Spring in Vermont are mind-boggling.

    So good to see you back–and with such brilliant greens! I am always amazed at how many shades of green Nature gives us–and you’ve captured those tones with your great sense of detail.

    Thanks for sharing 🙂

    Wow! Thanks for capturing your perceptions of VT spring leaves and for sharing them with us. We are seeing similar delights here in MI as we breathe in this amazing spring! Right now, we are being treated to the pinkish blossoms of the buckeye, which is adjacent to the Tri-color beech. Oh my! Whether Still Learning to See comes daily or weekly, I’m happy to receive your gifts of photos and words. Thanks, John!!!

    Sometimes when I’m driving on the Interstate, I have a hard time keeping my eyes on the road because I’m so enthralled with the glorious green colors of Spring. You’ve captured them beautifully. Thanks.

    An excellent display of your talents and subject matter John my Friend. I trust that what is annoying you will soon come to pass.

    • Not sure it is something that is “annoying” me but it may be. I just have not been able or willing to focus on posting my photos lately. Thanks for your thoughts!

    Good Morning, John,

    Welcome back. I had missed your “Learning to See” photographs and commented to Karen. Whatever schedule you might be on will be acceptable and appreciated.

    Yes, the different greens of spring – in Vermont or Michigan. Lovely. My best greetings, Marg

  8. John these are amazing!
