Green Tide

Green ... the word contains
Myriads and multitudes. . .
Spring's profligate coin.
Chartreuse, emerald,
Sea-green, grass-green, apple-green . . .
I am drunk with green!
Wrapped in blissful greens,
Nature stretches...preens -- I watch,
Rapt in endless greens.

I'm sure I read somewhere, once, that green has a calming influence on us.

The second photograph is lovely, both in colour and pattern.

By-the-way, word verification is creepyx. Now I'm wondering what's lurking in the foliage?

lovely...our back yard is a sea of green right now...the grapevine is overflowing and will one day sprout and abundance, the pears are tiny playing hide and seek in the leaves...its so beauiful and will only get more so...

Beautiful paen to the luscious greens of early May!

It is the same here. Almost subtropical right now, with all that humidity in the air due to the nightly rainfalls and warm temperatures during the day. I was born in May, so I could revel in its beauty endlessly.

Seems like everything is greener this year .. maybe it's because of our horrid winter and more then welcome spring?

Verde, que te quiero verde!!!!!

Vicki Lane said...

Rampant green -- especially after the nice rain we had on Monday! My asparagus were reaching for the sky! And the weeds -- unfortunately, the weed...

Kay, That's always my first thought!

Tammy said...

Beautiful! And to think only a few short weeks ago, we despaired of when we would see green again, as winter lingered on.

What is it in us that is fed by the sight of the earth's greening? I am never so full in spirit as when nature is cloaked in her many shades of green. Thanks for the beautiful photos of the farm, Vicki. It truly lifts me up.

That last photo is scrumptious! I think Robin Hood would enjoy it.

I love this post! I have been collecting examples of many greens and reds from my emerging Illinois spring and you beat me to the post! I love your mosaic shots, I'm going to have to figure out how to do those to keep my posts from getting too long. Thanks for sharing the pictures and our mutual amazement at the world around us. Life is fascinating for those who look.

I've always maintained that the beauty of the variety of greens in the spring equals the variety of colors of autumn. Beautiful photographs.

I like to think of green as God's favorite color.

Tipper said...

I've been feeling the exact same way-but my you said it so much better than I could have. Yes I've been drunk on green too-and I love it!

Wonderful images, lovely words - I just love all the different greens of spring. It's a very soothing colour - lovely post to read just before I go to bed :-)

I enjoyed your green photos. Our oak trees are performing their Springtime new leaf explosion. I love the new bright green leaves.

Vicki Lane said...

Tammy- I remember being embarrassed to post yet another snow and ice picture -- now I'm wondering if I'm overdoing the flowers (CAN one overdo flowers? Nahhh.)

Thanks, Liz -- it's a great time! Are you getting springish up there?

Ah, yes, Catalyst - "Robin in the Greenwood -- is Robin Hood awake?" Who is that poem by?

Beautiful post at your place, Mel! We were on the same wave length obviously!

Spring and Fall are two sides of the same coin, Mountainwoman!

Must be, Willow, She uses so much of it!

And the best of it is, Tipper, there's no hangover! Though driving can be dangerous when you're looking all around the way I do.

Sweet, green dreams, Jennyfreckles!

The new leaves are a treat, Callie! And I bet your biddies are enjoying the new weeds and grass and new bugs hatching

YES!

Love green apparently so does the divine because it is so prolific in nature.

Have a Happy 'Green' Day.
