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:
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:
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.

Nancy, I adore that little corner house. (shop?) It is such a fabulous color combination and a nice find for your green assignment! ~Lynda
Thanks Lynda. It’s actually empty inside and is used to overlook the park plus for classes for the children in the summer (they sit on the floor).
I love your photos, both how the window boxes take over in the south, and the mix at the botanical garden. Quite lovely!
You’re one of my biggest supporters – thanks as always for leaving a comment to let me know you were here!
I’m glad you liked them!
The green is even greener amid the surroundings. What a cool house
I always love it when you stop by and leave me something to think about. You point out things I hadn’t thought of – thanks!
I love your green pictures!
Thanks Darlene (as always – I so appreciate you reading my blog and taking time to comment).
Loved the contrasts in both the pictures!
creative photos, especially the window :)
I didn’t think of it as particularly creative until I saw your comment on my cell phone. It made me sit up just a bit straighter and appreciate what I did in that photo. Thank you!
You’re quite right. The contrasts are delightful. Thank you.
You’re welcome – thanks for stopping by!
