Luxuriously green

Do you have a favorite color?
 

Mine's green, especially that green tempered with yellow, the shades you see everywhere as spring wakes up the garden...

...the brilliant celery color of emerging leaves...
...the light olive of buds, tender pale sage that abuts woody stems that looked like dead sticks a few short weeks ago...
Of all the colors in the rainbow, the million hues of green are is my favorites.
 

Looking closely one spies tiny verdant wonders along our river. Do you love pussy willows as I do?

Our garden and the trails and lanes in the valley are bursting with greens. Crinkled pleats of blue-green, diminutive globes of frosty jade, emerald shades mixed with ruby.


Early spring lifts the heart and for me the best part of spring is the luxurious extravagance of that glorious color: green. Don't you agree?

Nice try, you're a good salesperson, esp. here with all this snow, but mine is still blue. All the beautiful variations of ocean and sky. I looove blue! ;- )

I love pussy willows. Memories from growing up back in the NY country make me long for pussy willows. You won't find any here in the Dallas/Fort Worth area! I like the colors green and blue. I'm transfixed by the sky and all the shades of blue.

I really love green too, but then I like every color except black. I especially like different colors together, and the blue/green/purple combo is a favorite.
