A sunny morning...

This morning began with sunshine and light layer of fog. The birds were active and still are. Trees of all kinds are waving with the gentle warm breeze. I will learn their names, in Danish and in English. The largest tree out my window is golden, green, burnt orange and a fiery red at the top. Right next to it is a conifer, or a juniper, not sure which, the branches, heavy with the weight of the needles gently sways in the wind, the cones dangling and dancing like earrings at a barn dance. There are day glo green leaves, brightly colored flowers and ground cover in purples, reds, yellows, of course they are all vibrant. Spring is beautiful in Denmark.
I cannot help but think back to the coming of spring in Eastern Montana. The need for us to shed the gray of winter and embrace color and life. After months of snow and cold, freezing weather in MT and grey clouds, and rain, in Denmark, we very nearly throw off our coats to bask in the suns glorious rays.
