Weekly Photo Challenge: GREEN

Coming on the heels of last week’s challenge, Renewal, comes this week’s Green. Logical enough, as green is, par excellence, the color of renewal in nature. I usually go through the archives for each challenge, compiling an “album” of various possibilities for the theme. What I discovered, with great wonder and pleasure, was how soothing to the spirit was the resulting collection of a great variety of greens. How pleasing they all are, how instead of clashing they somehow enrich each other, altogether a treasury of pleasure. Mother Nature really knows what she is about —

    Thanks for all the green! I feel like I’ve just taken a short nature walk, and I haven’t left my living room.

    Soothing indeed. Mother Nature rules!

  3. Wow, what a vibrant collection. Patting myself on the back, now, for loving green so much!

    Some really lovely shades of green. I love the stone seat. A nice place to sit and contemplate.

    Green – my absolute most favorite color, as my granddaughter would say. (Only hers is that marvelous shade of blue-green that seems to have a glow all its own.) My mother so loved green that her wedding dress was made of pale green velvet.

    Green is wonderfully calming. They don’t call it a “green room” for nothing. 😉

      Interesting! I never thought about why they call it a green room —

        Back in the day, the walls of the waiting rooms backstage were literally painted green to help keep the actors calm before they performed – hence the term ‘green room’. While the paint colors may have changed since then, the name stuck.

      • Touch2Touch says:

        Fascinating! I had no idea, Stef. Just thought green room was —- well, I guess I didn’t bother to think about what it might actually mean! Absolutely makes sense to keep the actors calm — stage fright is a very real phenomenon.
        Thanks for an interesting contribution. Hope your Thanksgiving was fine!

  9. PERFECT use of the gallery feature here – what a wonderful world of green. I especially love that bench surrounded by the quiet of moss.

      You too can sit there — if you go to Maine, and go to the Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Garden in Seal Harbor, Maine.
      But it’s only open one day a week in the summer months (!), so reserve way in advance.
      (Money may not buy happiness, but it sure can buy a whole lot of other things.)
