That's My World Tuesday: My world has turned green

I went on a walk this Sunday on the trails near and around Shelley Lake.
The triangle area of North Carolina where I live has gone from mostly brown with a few flowers to lush growth within the space of a few weeks.
Two weeks ago when I walked on this same trail there were very few trees that were leafing out and now they are all covered in leaves.
A field beside the lake is filled with buttercups. I can remember stringing buttercups together for long necklaces when I was a child.
The weather was perfect for walking on Sunday. It was chilly in the morning but the sun was shining and it grew warmer without getting hot.

To visit other parts of the world, you can go to That's My World Tuesday.

On a gorgeous day like that, no contest, one has to go out and enjoy the day with nature. If I had access to my images, you would see they would be similar to these images as I too took a walk under the sun.

Beautiful, green, and very springlike.

I, too, remember tying buttercups together in chains.

Carolyn Ford said...

Those leaves look so fresh and clean. It's just how I would imagine North Carolina to, green, green!

What a treat for the eyes. Simply superb. I could imagine how rejuvenating a walk through these terrain will be.

I had always seen these beautiful yellow flowers on a green green field in movies but had not encountered it here. Had no idea it was called buttercup. What a nice name.

Great capture of nature you have there. Simply gorgeous.

Hope you have a nice day.

Isn't it wonderful to see the world turning green again. I see the changes everyday when driving to work. You are a bit more ahead than here in this part of the UK.
