Green got into my soul on Wednesday
Ahh green… beautiful photos!
Thanks B, does all the dampness make you homesick?!
What a creative collection. I love these shots. I especially like the images of the flaking green paint, the duckweed (lovely composition), and the pegs on a line. They’ve all brightened my day!
Many thanks, I’m glad your day has been brightened! Green paint is an agricultural staple – in fact, I think there might have been a whole novel devoted to this subject…ironic and dark 🙂 I keep thinking I should repaint but it’s just so attractive…
this exchange could go on and on 🙂
Lemony answered my question – you do have duckweed, too. And I really like the photo of the clothespins (look! more word differences!) I do believe the door is my favorite, though. I’m a great fan of windows and doors.
You and me both shoreacres. Fellow door and window fans unite! Pins, pegs, love ’em all. Thanks. Actually, I’ve got a bit of a thing about that line – it makes an appearance in another post – and I’m sure it will again.
Ahh! So lovely and soothing. Mostly browns around here these days.
Reblogged this on Plews Potting Shed.
A Damascene moment! Lovely selection of greens you’ve found, I especially like the peeling door. Your post put me in mind of this post from FeyGirl at Serenity Spell: http://serenityspell.com/2012/11/23/weekly-photo-challenge-green/.
(BTW I don’t know it it’s a WP problem but all the photographs have disappeared from your post)
Thanks very much, though I had to look up Damascene and I’m not sure I’m any clearer! There’s something really appealing about peeling paint isn’t there. Hope the photographs have come back.
I tried to check your link but my computer didn’t like it and blocked it – not sure why, I’ll try another way.
I so love green! We get a reasonable amount of it here in Tasmania unlike when I lived in Western Australia and green turned to brown before you could notice the green in the first place. I am still learning about actual seasons having only 2 in W.A. summer and spring with the mildest of winters and deciduous trees are like discovering fairies in the bottom of the garden… magic! The luxury of water to spare…enough water to turn the landscape green makes me incredulous and envious beyond belief…imagine the wonderful garden that I could have if I didn’t have to pore over horticultural tombs to find “xeriscape” and “water-wise” and “drought tolerant” species that all seem to have a decided lack of green and a definate resemblance to alien species. While the U.K. is drowning under tides of water we are shrivelling with not a drop to spare…how ironic…
It is topsy turvy in more ways than one. I am definitely trying to be grateful but it’s hard! We have heard a little about the drought you have, it sounds horrendous. I will send some rain thoughts your way.
Thank you for the rainy thoughts…my sister in Western Australia is getting rain…lots of it…but here in Tasmania where it’s supposed to be cold and raining all of the time (they don’t call it little britain for nothing!) it’s been extended dry and clear blue skies. At least the veggies are going gangbusters 🙂
