Green, green, it’s green they say
On the far side of the hill
Green, green, I’m goin’ away
To where the grass is greener still.
Green Green by the New Christy Minstrels
I guess I’m one of “those” folks who hears a word or phrase and immediately a melody pops into their head . You can usually recognize these types when they begin humming in the middle of a conversation. Or they will be sitting at their desk working and suddenly burst out in song. You may think they are nuts (and they may think the same of themselves) but this is just how their mind works and nothing can be done to correct it. And since they are usually very entertaining, would you really want to?
Last night I stopped by Gardening Gone Wild, and haven’t stopped humming Green, Green by the New Christy Minstrels since that time. What set me off? The theme for the photo contest this month is “Green World”.
That’s a hard one for me. I tend toward the bright flowers rather than the background green shade. I’m going to have to really dig through my photo files.
In order to find the right photo, Rob Cardillo, this month’s judge says, “I’m looking for images where the color green steps up and takes the spotlight for a change. And let’s be ecumenical by celebrating green’s infinite range of personalities. That means we’ll include bluish, yellowish, grayish, golden and silvery greens in the mix. You can enter landscapes, flowers, foliage, bark, buds, berries, fruits and even green roots if you got ‘em.”
Okay, I’ve managed to find a few that I think fits the requirements. Now I could use some help in picking out just one. Luckily for me, WordPress has just added a slideshow capability to the image upload so this would be a good opportunity to try it out.
So which one of these photos really pops out at you and why? The more feedback I get will hopefully help me make a final decision.
Speaking of green, we’re finally getting some rain today, the first really good rain in about a month and even though the temperature is dropping back down, the grass has suddenly turned a bright green and the spring bulbs have really perked up. It really is a green, green day.
