Everything Is Turning Green!

I believe in green. Year round! Not just for green shamrocks, one day out of the year.


I have to confess to being rather lousy at remembering to decorate for holidays. It seems by the time I think to do so, the holiday has already come and gone. Or I leave the holiday decor up way too long!

I think I'm better at seasons. Spring is just around the corner, and I can always embrace spring green! Seasons seems more natural and sustained, a progression of time, in rhythm with nature. Not as arbitrary as a one day holiday. So spring is the season of green! Yup, green, I can always celebrate that!

First days of spring-the sky

is bright blue, the sun huge and warm.

Everything's turning green.

  1. All the green is one of the things I most loved (and most miss) about Oregon- always being able to find green year round. Even in February, it was green. Here in Virginia, I am surrounded by brown, and starving for a bit of green to start peeping through the buds on the trees. I know it's coming... but it's not here just yet. I'm glad that you love the green too!

    1. Yes, I do love green. I was raised on a 20 acre farm... Lots of greens to explore year round! Hope the greens find you soon!
