Emerald Star

"Green" is the inspiration for this week's Take A Word challenge. The hills around my home are indeed turning green after tons of rain this winter and it is a welcome sight. Signs of Spring always bring enchantment and faery lore to the surface for me and this collage represents the magical elements in the deep woods and ponds at this time of year.
