Green- that is the word to describe April in Washington; a rainbow of verdant hues carpets the forests and fields, with only a few stubborn trees clinging to their drab winter garb. In past weeks I was able to photograph every sign of spring-not now! Every morning there are a dozen new plants springing from the ground, new leaves budding from barren branches, flowers bursting into bloom fast as fireworks in July.
