This is the sheer latent vivacity of life caught in a moment of time upon the mountain.
It is a verdant explosion of leaf, stem, and flower into the familiar and sensuous world of sun and warmth.
Looking down, it is possible to sense and to see the growth of these wild geraniums.
It is the moment of birth and a paean to the fecundity of the rich earth here.
