I know, this is not a spectacular sunrise – but it is beautiful. Every sunrise is. The clouds add interest to the sky and the colors are muted, but still dramatic.
Most of the trees around here are evergreen – Douglas Firs, Hemlock and Cedars – but where land has been logged (which is more than I would like), scrubby deciduous types sprout up. This is an early sprouting type, which is a nice sign that spring is definitely on the way.
With all the rain and clouds around here, anything that is left alone becomes covered with moss. I love the moss. It stays green even during a few dry months in the summer. Rocks, stumps, and lawns become moss covered here, and creates a soft carpet of green.
Hang in there,
