At the first when it comes up, the field turns green before ever a single blade comes up. That's true. I can go up on the ridge back of my barn and look down and see it. The ground turns green first, the the wheat comes through shoot by shoot. Honey locust trees are like that in the spring. You see green way up in the air between the little branches, a haze of green, and then the leaves come.''
