Photo Challenge, Week 24 - Green

It's another week and another photo prompt from Sally at The Studio Sublime. I must admit that this week's prompt was difficult not because it would be a challenge to find a subject but rather because this time of year I'm just about surrounded by.....GREEN.

We are going green for this weeks Focus On Life photo. 
GREEN!  The color of balance, learning, growth and harmony! GREEN evokes feelings of calm and symbolizes self-respect and well being.  What a great color to focus on!

*Grab your cameras and find some green

The mountains are greening up, the grass is green, the weeds are green. Despite Kermit's lament - it's very easy being green right now. Except in our garden. Most everything in the garden has just been planted so if one looks at it one sees more brown than green; well really more white, red, and black than green given the hubby's use of ground coverings and shade things. Obviously HE is the gardener.

But come August it's an explosion of greens. Glorious shades of greens.

Erm, it's also when I find greens in the goats' mouths.


You see the spoiled creatures get the tops and other detritus when I process the vegetables.


Needless to say, the goats love when the garden comes in.
Especially Pricilla.

So around these parts green can show up in places one might not expect.

Be sure to check out everyone's look at the color green at The Studio Sublime.
