It isn't easy being green....

Green really isn't green.  It's more complicated than that.  You'll see.  Go here for 61 renditions of green.  Each then morphs into MANY more!  So follow out at least one.  Never thought green could be so..prevalent, so mystifying!  Guess Kermit was right all along:  "It isn't easy being green..."

In spite of the complications, though, this time of year, everything does seem to be a shade or pigment or hue of "green.'   We are wrapped in greenery.  This year--more than ever I remember--it's an Appalachian jungle out here JOTOLR.  The myriad shades of green boggle the mind.  With all the rain and fog we've been experiencing, the lushness of the foliage is astonishing.  Even the lichens seem to be flourishing.
Maybe it will inspire us all...a "green" environment; a "greener" world....but's more complicated than that...isn't it?


  1. Lovely shots, Elora. The one at the top looks so cool and inviting---I'd like to dip my toes into that water. And I'm really likin' that lichen!

    It IS really lush this year, isn't it? We had a much warmer-than-usual winter here, so I think that might be a big part of it. This year was the first time we ever had to mow in March.
