Oak Leaves

rain drops to ice drips

rain drops, ice drops

All the world looks like it’s coated with a glaze. I wonder when the oaks will finally give up and drop last year’s leaves.

Soon it will be time to replace the browns in the landscape with greens. I did see quite a bit of the Irish green yesterday, it being St. Paddy’s Day, but that isn’t the green I’m waiting for.
