Verdant


The fragrance of the blue spruce in my front yard is unbelievable.


I love linden trees.

'Here a Linden-tree stood, bright'ning
All adown its silver rind;
For, as some trees draw the lightning,
So this tree, unto my mind,
Drew to earth the blessed sunshine
From the sky where it was shrined"--Elizabeth Barrett Browning

"Be ay of chere as light as lefe on Linde."--Chaucer
