In Spring the landscape here in South Shropshire turns a bright verdant green.
Looking out of the window on this rainy day there is still the verdant green of Spring but there are darker greens and lighter greens and lots of greens inbetween.
The leaves of our vine look bright against the willow behind it.
Yew trees often found in church yards are a dark sombre green.
My damson tree looks a dark green today.
When you start looking closely a lawn is lots of different greens as are all the trees and shrubs and leaves of flowers and vegetables.
Artist Georgia O’Keefe said:
Nobody sees a flower, really, we haven’t the time and to see takes time…
I have taken this saying out of context, it always makes me think and look.
See the greens!
