i have always loved green but for some reason this season
i am in love with green!
green flowers...green leaves....green backgrounds...green
carpets of grass...i even have a new green tea kettle.
when i read the gardening gone wild photo contest
was about green world. i had to jump right in.
i have a lot of green going on in the garden but by far
my favourite right now is the honeyhill joy helleborus.
they mix well with white(also another favourite colour.)
so this is my entry into the april ggw photo contest....but
there is much more green to see.
the hazy grey skies of early spring are giving way to sparkling
green leaves against a soft blue canvas. the ever so slight
green tinge on the newly blooming dogwoods make them
ease into this picturesque scene.
in spring....your senses become entangled with every leaf, bloom, scent, colour.
the leaves are just as pleasing to the eye as any buds or blooms.
i am so thankful to have a carpet of green with wild violets amongst the blades.
honestly i don't want to mow just yet...although my neighbours might be
wishing i would.
tender leafy lettuces...planted in large containers
just weeks ago are ruffly and tasty and are a perfectly pleasing green.
barbados...green summer crisp lettuce.
i love how the greening branches just look like they are stretching as
far as they can towards the sun.
creeping jenny is coming back nicely and the chartreuse colour is exciting.
of course all is greening up and the new growth flushing
out is what i live for in the spring.
i am sure by now you are saying what's the big deal...this
happens every spring. i know but i never tire of the excitement that
spring green brings.
with such a long dreary winter...i am especially grateful this year.
so every time the sun shines and lights up a new bloom
or the leaves my heart beats a little faster .
then when i see something new emerging through the mulch/dirt
i get a little skip in my step...for i am loving the green.
just a few more of the gorgeous hellebores...i will be planting more.
last but not least we had a baby stick bug born in our terrarium
it must have been in there from last years mating.
it is the tiniest thing and very bright green...
we released him into our garden...he seems to be glowing with happiness.
