Spring Greens Around Dallas

20140418_185410

The weather is starting to get warmer. Just a matter of weeks ago I could walk several miles around town without breaking a sweat; now those same jaunts leave me uncomfortably drenched. But I don’t want to let it hinder my love of exploring the city on foot. I just suck it up and hydrate more.

The real tragedy occurs in the dead of summer when all the trees and grass turn more of a dead brown than a lively green. Have I mentioned that green is my favorite color? Spring time in Texas offers up all kinds of lovely greens, especially if there’s been plenty of April rain. It’s delightful!

I remembering reading online somewhere that the human eye can detect more shades of green than any other color. Do you suppose that’s true? I hope so. I’d hate to miss out on any hue of my favorite color.

So while the season that celebrates green is still in full swing, I thought I’d share some pictures I’ve captured in the last few weeks that show off my favorite color.
