Spring Means Green and HOPE has Arrived!
This image celebrates the birth today of my second grand-niece, Baby Hope. My brother guano is beside himself with joy to be Grandpa to two beautiful girls from Staycea and Eric. See Baby Hope and the family starting here:

Yeah for guano and all your family in the bat cave. Yeah to Spring and Hope!
BTW, this is commonly called the asparagus fern, but it is a decorative plant used by florists and common to many Arizona gardens. This variety pictured features long fronds about 18 to 24" and the leaves/needles are about 1/3" long. It is not a fern at all, but a form of evergreen. In the Spring in Arizona, the plant gets really bright green and lush. The cone shaped long frond here is seen from head-on at the tip. More information about this plant here. Another image showing the great, glowing bright greens of this plant is here.
