Flickr Favorites - G r e e n

Not only is green my favorite color, it is also a sign of spring.

I realized spring must certainly be approaching when today we are receiving a ton of rain, as opposed to a ton of snow. Just as Mitsy said on her blog, the rain is a welcome site as it means warmer temperatures are here!

I'm seeing more and more green grass appear from under the snow everyday, another welcome sign of spring.

But the biggest sign that spring is approaching was our return to one of my favorite places:

Seems like months since we'd taken a walk in our favorite park with the dogs. Of course a record amount of snow, and my husband receiving a kidney transplant were obvious reasons why we couldn't spend all winter walking the park! Last Sunday I said it was high time we got out there, snow or not, and walked out towards Washington's Headquarters. It was a wonderful afternoon.

And it was certainly a sign that spring is right around the corner.

Green is also my favorite color so I'm biased to your mosaic! :)
So good to get out there again, isn't it?
