the bluebell leaves have lengthened out of the leaf litter by at least 2 inches, during these warm days.

with the low sun shining through them, they remind me of David Hockney’s window for Westminster Abbey – the green so intense that the life-force seems tangible.

light tempts the eye to see subtle things in a new way, just as a great artist, like Hockney, helps us to perceive and understand things differently.

look at the light on the spring growth, however ordinary it may seem at first…

life, like art, can be surprising
