Have you noticed recently that the trees are two-toned? The first leaves of spring have been joined by new leaves this week, so the cherry tree in the backyard is two hues of green and the maples trees along the driveway have baby red leaves. The canopy along the back fence doubled overnight in density, creating deep shade. Growth continues.
A friend said yesterday morning that if there were no humans, the plants would take over the planet in mere moments.
I noted early in this journey that green grows in the cracks. Green has certainly taken over in our little piece of the world.
I'm also aware of the growth that is occurring during my treatment as the chemotherapy kills cancer and fast-growing cells in my body and the white blood cells bounce back. Life is amazing, resilient.
