  1. I'm loving how this all comes together. There are so many gorgeous hues of green this time of year!

    1. Yes! Shades and shades of it! Looking at the bit of tree leaves coming is lovely. Thanks, Cheriee!

  2. Perfect image for your poem today. I also like the soft /p/ sound repeated in "surprising" and "palette."

    1. Aw, thanks, Glenda. I appreciate your noticing.
