Five minutes away from my back door is a trail head into Forest Park. Today as I walked on a loop I let myself take in all the different greens of these new Northwest plants. When I lived in Massachusetts during the Fall I would look at the leaves and feel like I was visually gorging myself. In CO, I feel myself welling up with love and adoration when I surround myself with mountain views.

Here, the climate is much more humid and lush than arid Colorado, and the greens of the forest are filling my eyes with a new sense of wonder and appreciation. It feels very right to be surrounded by so many shades of green.

What fills your eyes and heart with appreciation where you live?
