When someone says the word “green”, what comes to mind? Green like grass? Green like that of a traffic signal? Or something more like the color of money? How about green like plants in the garden?
The Hubby and I decided to take a stroll on our patio last night, and here are some of the shades of green that were waiting for us to enjoy.
Once upon a time, this was a mere rosemary plant…now, it’s a rosemary shrub. Each year, we have a steady supply of fresh rosemary for our cooking. This year, the purple blooms seem to be a sign that the plant is totally happy to share its bounty with us!
Look closely – the bloom on the right “hanging” in mid-air is attached via a spider web.
How pretty are the Japanese Maples as the leaves are freshly open in the Spring? Not yet stressed under the heat of Summer.
This “snail” seems to be happy in his perch.
The iris can barely contain themselves..look at the bud formed on this one.
Here is some “fire engine red” to finish things off. Still, there is plenty of green out there!
Very pretty! Spring is my favorite season and I love the shades of green. Everything is so fresh and alive. I was just mentioning to my husband this past weekend how pretty the different shades of green are – I love the lime green of leaves before they are fully opened. Happy Spring!
It is a really pretty time of year…the lime greens are our favorites, too. We have a hosta that is just adorable! It’s called Guacamole, and looks just like it sounds..good enough to eat! LOL!
Love these pics! Beautiful colors!!! 🙂
Thanks from the Hubbyy. It is so pretty outside this time of year!
Very pretty. Do you leave the rosemary out year round & does it just keep coming back? I’ve never planted it here & wonder how it would do. Just got my basil plants to sprout inside. My daffodils are in full bloom, purple vinca is blooming on the hill & lot of buds everywhere. Alas, I just turned the heat up because we seem to have taken a step back today.
The rosemary is planted (and taking over the universe…).Not sure how it would do planted there, since it is a Mediterranean plant. Bet you could pot it up, and over winter in the house. We have our “last night” of below 50’s weather on Thursday, so I’ll be planting me some basil outside, too. Have purple basil, spicy globe basil, tomatoes of all types, and more just waiting to get their little roots in the soil. Soon…very soon for you!
Good point on the rosemary. I wonder if I get it growing well outside it would hang in there moving it inside. For some reason I’ve been able to keep basil growing in pots year round but I’ve never had luck getting rosemary to sprout indoors.
Home Depot usually has rosemary in small containers. The key is to keep it from drying out with the dry home heat in the winter.
