Green glory

July 30, 2008

A friend of mine from the West Coast once commented that the summer sunlight looks green on the East Coast when it filters through the trees.  I’d never examined my physical surroundings from the perspective of an outsider before, but after spending a summer out West myself, I am able to see what he was talking about.

Walking through Pine Grove Mills these past several days since my return, I’ve been awed by the lushness of the landscape.  Pale green grasses, bright green leaves, hunter green pines, and bluish green ridges swell the scenery with a shimmery green glow.  Of course, this “glow” is actually the oppressive humidity that so many of us complain about, but without it, we wouldn’t have this gorgeous flora to bask in. 

For me, nothing will ever feel as much like summer as a warm, humid afternoon or evening with tree leaves rustling in the breezes that briefly stir the heavy air, the scent of moist organic matter drifting in its currents.
