50 Shades of Green

Florida Green
March 23, 2015
The weather has been playing with my affections. During the past week I have experienced the 80's of Florida and the 20's to 70's of the Baltimore area.

I wish it would settle into a solid range--like the 70's to 80's. 

Along with the whipsawing temperatures, I have enjoyed what I will call, 50 shades of Green.

While in Florida--the green trees and grass exhibited deep and mature hues of green. Against the cyan sky--the colors were stunning and rich.

Yesterday, I experienced the faded hues of green attempting to transform from the faded tones of Winter while golfing during the afternoon.

The two just do not compare. 

I long for the deep mature greens--but waking to temperatures in the 20's is not going to make the transformation happen anytime soon. I am hopeful, however, because tomorrow morning is the last one with below freezing temperatures forecast for the next ten days!
