“The world is exploding in emerald, sage, and lusty chartreuse – neon green with so much yellow in it. It is an explosive green that, if one could watch it moment by moment throughout the day, would grow in every dimension.”

Amy Seidl (Early Spring: An Ecologist and Her Children Wake to a Warming World)
