Moving on over

I've combined my blogs, just look at the last post, over at Alchemy of Clay. Trying to have a life outside blogland. Not sure it's going to work....

The greening of the mountains 1

In Haws Creek valley, the trees are beginning to have full green, while up-slope they are bare or budding.

The overlook is at 2170 feet, looking west in morning sunshine.  Dark greens are evergreens.

A bit further up the Blue Ridge Parkway on a southeastern slope, many little green leaves are popping out. 

And the delicate pink of a redbud is visible against the grey, green and brownscape.

Though there's not a clear line of where the green is already accomplished, the difference between bare branches along the top of the mountain and those with pale green in the valley are obvious.
