A literal interpretation of Cee’s Mid-week Madness Challenge: forest or dark green.
Lots of colors in the flowers at this time of year, but the dominant color of spring is green. The green of new leaves emerging, but also of moss, catkins and some flowers. Here are a few spring greens from this morning’s walk for Cee’s Mid-week madness challenge: Spring Season.
Spring is here technically but it’s still pretty chilly. Sunday I went out in search of signs of spring. The first spring green I found was the very healthy moss growing on the fire pit. It was spring green the color, but a very winter-y sort of growth.
From a distance there doesn’t seem to be much green in the woods.
Looking closer, I found a few brave leaves starting to emerge.
Naturally the stinging nettle was the most lush!
For Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Orange and Green. This color combination seems like it is everywhere right now. Just a few examples from walking the pups today:
A teeny-tiny, baby frond.
I’ve had a fern obsession this past week. My maidenhair fern is getting new fronds, and it is fascinating to watch them emerge and unfurl. For perspective: the pine cone in the photo below, beside the baby, is about 3 inches long.
To be continued…
The other day I was taking pictures of the holly berries starting to redden, and almost missed noticing this iridescent jewel of a bug.
Some light and limey greens for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Lime or light green
It IS Easy Being Green!…all you need is a little water.
Desert green: The unusual amount of rainfall that has caused distress in other areas has resulted in a very green desert.
This plant has green branches because it has adapted to the desert by having its branches photosynthesize. Leaves lose too much water.
I took these pictures when I was in my first photography class. The assignment was to pay special attention to different kinds of light. These ferns were cast into shadow by midday light reflecting off of the grass.
