3 April, 2021.
I wrapped up March making small sketches at a nature preserve not far from my house. The past week my curiosity has been piqued by the general shapes of the evergreens, surrounded by still-bare trees, dead wood, and tall, brown grasses.
A few hours south of here, I noticed a day or so later that fresh green buds are dotting the branches of trees. It’s an uplifting realization: green grass, foliage, trees signal rebirth. Spring is here.
