Spring: the Equinox, or “it’s not easy being green”–but it sure is beautiful

It may not be easy to be green, but for a couple of weeks each spring, we enjoy the indescribable shade of green of the new leaves as the trees spring back to life.

Several of you have commented on how magical this hue is, and we agree. The green of the baby leaves is invigorating and inspiring.

We’ve taken an informal poll amongst those who’ve commented on this shade, and the consensus is that the best time to appreciate the short-lived brilliant green on our trees is in the evening. The leaves appear to glow with a healthy, life-affirming green. Another favorite time to appreciate the natural beauty in the city is after a storm.

Cost to enjoy nature’s art: Free.

And if you can possibly capture the phenomenon that is this color, do send a photo our way. We’ve tried unsuccessfully to immortalize this in photos…so it lives in our memories, and gives us just on more reason to anticipate and appreciate spring.
