It is simply fabulous to notice winter’s bare vines and stems suddenly cloaked in soft new leaves. Emerging leaves look soft and moist; their colors nearly translucent.
These grapevines cover the rails of our porch, and a Clematis grows entwined with them. Soft and pliable now, these new green vines will harden by summer’s end.
Even as much of the country still measures their snow in feet, spring melts into summer here in coastal Virginia. It is fabulously lush and lovely here on this last Friday of April.
If spring has not yet found your garden, I trust its lush beauty will soon touch you, too.

I’ve set an intention to find some wonderful, beautiful, and happiness inducing thing to photograph each Friday. If you’re moved to find something Fabulous to share on Fridays as well, please tag your post “Fabulous Friday” and link your post back to mine.
Happiness is contagious! Let’s infect one another!
