Spring is my favorite time in Texas. When I took these pictures a year ago, the lock down had just started. So little was known about the risks of COVID-19, the waterway in my town was deserted. A spot usually hopping with out-door dining, concerts, runners, dog walkers and kayakers, was also silent.
I’d always been a big walker, but now walking was the highlight of each day. I got to meet neighbors out in their yards, some for the first time. One of my neighbors, a young artist, began painting and hanging inspirational flags in her front yard. She used a lot of spring green in these pieces, which cheered up the whole neighborhood. You can scroll through her wilderness series for more spring green at Kristine Schneider Art.
My garden was destroyed by the recent freeze, but I found these spring green photos on my iPhone camera roll from last year. Time to begin the garden again.
A recent photo from Galveston thrown in because….green shirt from my last half marathon walk.
