Comin’ on Green

30 Apr

This is the crayola time of year. When people who make up names for crayons–and paint I imagine–are swooming over green. That there can be so many shades of the same color…and we call all of them green. IMG_2075 IMG_2068 (1)

And this color. Magenta? It’s washed out in this pic. That’s almost a good thing. But the shrub is rhodedendron.

      the bowl surprised me. i thought it would be horrible…but actually it radiates pure cheer. and the greens, yes, that there can be such diversity.

      i love remembering this…that what we have here in season is the opposite for you. another example of parallel realities.
