That was a sight for sore eyes. Thank you!
You are oh so welcome Alison!
So nice to see green instead of white! I hope it's warming up there.
It is, but it's also turning very wet.
Snow free, mossy, and ferny....nice!
Funny you mention the snow, if you look close there are still a few small patches. I cropped out the bigger ones.
GREEN! It's good to be green. where were these taken? thanks for sharing
Highway 30, on my way to Cistus last week! I was in awe, the roadside was gorgeous and thankfully I found a spot to park (off the highway) and safely snap some photos.
A nice complement to my "brown" post today. Sigh. It's never that mossy and ferny here. Double-sigh.
Green and brown are my two favorite colors. With 4.45" of rain (okay some of that fell as snow) this month moss is everywhere!
I was thinking that looked like the territory around here. Did you see the boulder-sized rock slides along the way? Oh, for a hydraulic lift.
I did not, it was week that I was out that way. Perhaps they hadn't yet happened? Or maybe I was just blinded by all the waving ferns.
Wow! that really is a green landscape!
And I couldn't even get to the best parts! (without risking being hit by a speeding truck, which I would really like to avoid).
This is the kind of green we NEVER get here in our virtual desert. But we have lots of shades of gray and brown :-).
Someday I'd like to see if I miss it. If I'd get tired of the dry sun...
And your pictures are nice too.
Lush! I feel instantly relaxed...
It has that effect doesn't it?
This is why I love the Pacific Northwest. So lush and green. I'm just going to pretend that ivy is a mutant form of licorice fern, though. I spent 4 years volunteering with my highschool at Seaquest State Park to help remove that evil vine.
Ya I almost omitted the ivy shots knowing they'd make some people shudder.
So very Oregonian !
The west half at least.
Simply beautiful! Thanks for the moment of green.
It's kind of amazing just how green it is out there right now. SO MUCH RAIN.
