'It is the sweet, simple things of life which are the real ones after all.'




Laura Ingalls Wilder had the right idea.
Today's ABC Wedneday letter is "G"
Like green apples on the ground where deer come to eat.
--for me,
G for Green.
A lime green coleus in my loon planter.

Green Heron and guests.

Spring green Ginkho leaves.

and my very favorite color: turquoise green on a Vespa.

I don't need to tell you that green is my favorite color! I keep trying different background colors for my blog but always return to a shade of green.

I admire all your bird photos, and this one is no disappointment. Gingkhos are one of the commonest street trees here in Berkeley, and they are especially appealing in the spring.

Coleus are a favourite of mine, but I haven't a green one. I love the variegated leaves, particularly the silver.
