The New Leaves

Hello friends! Tonight’s feature image is titled “New Leaves 33020” and is available for purchase by the instructions at the bottom of the article.

The late afternoon sum smiles across mountain and welcomes my exit from my day job. The opportunity to work from home has added so much life to my day! I’ve traded a morning stop by the river for a moment of peace and quiet for an afternoon stroll around my forest. The Swallowtail butterflies have already begun to soar gracefully across my window. They’re seen only for a moment as they search for the newly formed leaves and flowers in the bushes. The open window has also shown me that the bees are out searching for the fresh nectar. Those who feed the hummingbirds should be getting those feeders ready for the early arrivals! The computer screen goes dark and I’m free to step out the corporate world and directly into the real world. The songbirds are starting to get used to my presence. They don’t really get close but they don’t fly away as quickly. Today as I entered into the trees I was greeted by the brand new maple leaves. They’re fully formed but not fully open. Over the next day the roots will pump water into the leaves and the fuzz will fall away.

The texture of the new leaves.

I’m thrilled to have the green leaves in place of the bare twigs but the texture new leaves are fascinating as well. The repeated lines of the veins are a welcome consistent pattern in contrast to the randomness of twigs that have filled my world for the past four months. I lift my eyes up and soak in all the green spots on the hill and I can almost feel the life returning as the long slumber ends.
