Weekly Photo Challenge: Green


This week’s photo challenge is green.  There were so many green things I could share such as my garden, a view of downtown when the spring colors have finally arrived, or a picture of the woods when I’m out hiking with my favorite boy toy.

But then I thought green with a contrast would be more fun!  I love it when green gets matched with something that is an opposite color – for some reason, green just seems to go with it all.

Such as green with a bright melon color:

Charleston, South Carolina

Isn’t that just cool?  I love the plants around the windows like that and how the lime green of the bottom plant contrasts with those walls.

Here’s another favorite – purple and green:

Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens
Richmond, Virginia

The purple coleus itself has a tiny green center, which is accentuated by all those green plants around it.  I thought it was just gorgeous.

The weather has been somewhat warm but very rainy.  I cannot tell you how much fun it is to take pictures while holding an umbrella.  Still, my favorite boy toy and I are pretty passionate about our photography, so off we’ve gone despite the weather.

Have a good week and be sure to get enough rest to enjoy your holidays.
