Honeysuckle Green

Fri PM Hellcat Trail Plum Island

The honeysuckle bushes are leafing all over the place. It’s like green popcorn throughout the woodland section of this trail. Looking closely, you can see the little leaves busting out of buds and beginning their photosynthetic lives of light and carbon dioxide. Each one is like a child. Everything is there. And green! Already nature’s gold is gone here, and Frost would talk of the inevitable decline in store for each one of these little darlings. He can be so unzenlike.
