With snow now melted, just barely we might add, the forest floor is beginning to reveal itself again. Oregon Grape or Mahonia aquifolium grows abundantly in our forests and the newly exposed leaves presented themselves each as a unique artwork this day.

The spiny leaves and colors becoming something between painting and sculpture with each cluster of leaves seeming to harbor a bit of all the season of the year. Spring and fall combined with touches of summer and winter yet each cluster just emerging from beneath a blanket of white.
