It is yellow-green season here in southern Massachusetts. In Staci’s post on Monday, she penned an ode to the golden California poppy, which I remember so fondly from the years I lived in the Carmel hills.
Here on Cape Cod we have masses of buttercups, many much-maligned dandelions, stands of yellow mustard, and blankets of tiny winter aconite (mostly gone by now). But we also have the newly budded shrubs, yellow-edged hostas, and the tiny yellow-green leaflets on budding trees. All together they make a glowing riot of color that warms the soul, even on some of these unseasonably cold May days.
These images were all shot with my 50mm lens, which I hadn’t used in a VERY long time. It was a joy to get reacquainted with this lens, which has been a faithful friend over the years.
Here’s to yellow-green season! See you next month.
