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!
