The third of our three visits to the Millman Road, a Heritage Road on Prince Edward Island happened this past Friday. The series of photos, taken May 22, May 29 and June 5, show how dramatically the setting changed in just two short weeks. This time of year sees incredible change on this island.
In those two weeks, trees went from a dormant-like stage,
to unfolding leaves,
and are now open for business.
On our first visit, my husband and I were in awe of the walls of grey.
The grey had begun to disappear a week later.
At the end of two weeks, walls of green had replaced the grey. Tree trunks looked black more than grey, shaded by the canopy.
It is interesting that the sun was shining on the last day as well, a great welcome to the leafy reality of summer.
Walking down that road now, one walks in a green glow through a tunnel in many places.
The birds are singing or calling to one another but are invisible among the leaves. It is busy under the green canopy.
Watching nature express herself the last few weeks has been good for the spirit in these trying times.
