Green in Nature

Shifting the focus from Pink to Green.  With not a color in between!

In my last post I took you to my special place in the Pink Lakes, this time I want to transport you a bit closer to my home.  Where, at the moment,  with all the rain that’s fallen, it’s lush and green.

I love a photo challenge so when I saw this week’s Tuesday’s Photo Challenge hosted by Frank at Dutch Goes the Photo I couldn’t resist.  The theme this week is all things green.  Go check him out, he’s a great photographer.

Shifting the focus to green is not hard for me as I’ve always felt at one with nature.

Here I am looking upwards.  Appreciating the green beauty up above.

And down below as well.  Here’s the green looking down onto my back yard.


And here’s the green at my feet today.  The grass needs a mow though I’m sure our guinea pigs would love being let loose here.  It’d be like a jungle for them!

This month I’m trying to be more mindful and kinder to myself.  So when I saw this quote I couldn’t resist using it to finish this post.

Although this isn’t my own photo it fits the theme and echoes my thoughts perfectly.

As we strive to be more mindful in May let’s keep enjoying the journey.

  6. Lovely to see all that greenery! Our climate is semi-arid, so it is green for about 15 minutes in spring, and then it goes brown (or golden brown if you are feeling generous!) Mind you, it snowed today…
