I love the woods in spring. The new growth is iridescent. Looking through the trees the light is suffused with the glimmer of spring green. It is the kingdom of fairies and unicorns. Where summer provides an endless canopy of green, spring frames each bright new leaf against the backdrop of the forest floor. Nature is delicate and intricate where it soon will be robust and abundant. You easily see every detail, an unfurling fern, moss brightening a decaying stump, lichen on an old wall.
