Here are some different shades of green I saw in Great Hills Park on February 23. The first picture is a close-up of mosses on a horizontal tree branch.
In the second picture, notice how the rattan vines, Berchemia scandens, held the upper part of a broken tree in place and kept it from falling over.
In the third image, look at all those maidenhair ferns, Adiantum capillus-veneris, made happy by the rain.
And finally here are some branches of an Ashe juniper, Juniperus ashei, with pale green lichen on them.
