This is what spring green looks like in Arizona, specifically at the Desert Botanical Gardens in Phoenix. Probably not what spring looks like where you live.

for Life in Colour: green

    Pretty, though! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

  2. Sheree says:

    No indeed but it’s lovely too

  3. Leya says:

    Lovely, Janet!

  4. manvmusic says:

    Woah, what an odd picture for the time of Spring! The contrast eh? πŸ€”πŸ—£πŸ˜‚

  5. de Wets Wild says:

    I think it is absolutely gorgeous!

  6. Dan Antion says:

    We’re still looking at mostly brown, so this looks like spring to me πŸ™‚

  7. It looks like a magic land – a combination of whimsy and fantasy.
    Been warm here with a bit of rain. Surprisingly small green leaves are showing up in the least likely places. Yep, it’s Spring

  8. Su Leslie says:

    Very different to my experiences of Spring, but very beautiful too.

  9. I hope I’m lucky enough to see it in person one day… I miss travel. Until then, I’m glad I can enjoy it through your lens.

  10. Resa says:

    Exotic in its own way, green and gorgeous! I adore this spot. Thanks for the lovely shot, Janet!

  11. Monica Singh says:

    Every aspect of spring is magical. Nature has strange ways to show its beauty too. This picture portrays just that. Different imagination of nature.

  12. Those are gorgeous shades of green and all those textures, and shapes are wonderful.

    • Thanks! Glad you enjoyed them, Deborah. Just got back from a nice day trip to Payson and the area around it. Mountains! Even saw a bit of snow in some shady spots. πŸ™‚

      • Sounds like a great day! πŸ˜€

      • It was a wonderful day, I also found one of the lavender farms I was interested in seeing and found out what type of lavender should grow best in our yard, naturally NOT one of the two types I tried to grow unsuccessfully last spring. :-/ I’ll see if I can find some because I’d love to grow my own. Also picked up some lavender products. All that and got into the mountains as well. Hurrah!

      • Is Spanish Lavender one of the types you can grow there?

        I hope you’re able to find some and grow it successfully.

        It was a good day! I was resting mode as I got home Friday evening from Baby Girl’s house where I was for 5 days watching the Littlest while she was working, then after school we had #1 as well. Littlest is so busy, and his naps are not as long any more either. πŸ˜€

      • Yes! Spanish is the one he told me to look for. I’d tried English and French to no avail.

        Sounds like you had a good time but probably quite nice to be home as well. πŸ™‚ The joy of being a grandparent, eh?

  13. Wonderful Wonderful greenery!

What do you think? I'd love to hear your thoughts on this, that or the other thing.
