Daily Prompt: Green [-eyed Monster]

The payoff of living in the damp (understatement, that!) Pacific Northwest is the GREEN surroundings. In spring, amidst the showers, lush vegetation unfolds before our very eyes. Just look at those little fiddleheads reaching for the sky.

IMG_3590Though a northwest native, I spent five long years in the Mid-west United States and while I found natural beauty wherever I went (Arkansas and Minnesota are lovely, in their own way), I always longed to return to the greener climbs of the PNW (i.e., can you say “jealous“? that emotion was regularly felt when I chatted on the phone with my family and friends “back home” in Washington). As luck (and  A LOT of hard work) would have it, I did return and my family is now happily settled in Northwest Oregon, where we seek out opportunities to fill our senses with the rich sights, smells and sounds of this lovely region. The photo here was snapped on my “little go everywhere phone,” on a hike we took on Mother’s Day 2012, in the Saddle Mountain State Natural Area, in Oregon’s Coastal Range.
