Shades Of Green...

Green is my absolute favoritist color.  Yes, you read it right...favoritist.

This year we're seeing more green because we've had lots and lots of rain. Last night we had another 1.5" during a thunderstorm.  The corn and beans are growing like crazy!

At a recent family reunion, I was talking to Jim's Aunt, and she mentioned how many different shades of green there are, if you just look around.  She's right, you know!  I've been paying attention, and today I took the camera and captured some of the beautiful shades of green in our neighborhood. Some are at home and some are not, but all are within a two mile radius of home.

Roadside weeds, neighbor's hay fields, corn and tobacco...

Neighbor's tobacco...

Grassy meadow at the other farm, beans, a "just baled" hay field, and corn...

Jim started mowing third cutting alfalfa today...

I think the green hay wagon counts!  Waiting for "hopefully" Saturday, to be filled with some dry hay if the weather behaves...

Headed back home again...corn, tobacco, trees, many different shades of green...

Back home, the corn behind the barn with tassels, giving it a different look...

I love all these shades in my shrub border and the garden beyond...

...and these lovely variegated coleus are my favorite...

Green really is my favoritist color!  How about you?


  1. you're right, there are a ton of green shades. i love the fresh spring greens, the more intense greens after a thunderstorm, healthy crops are always a good thing. :)

  2. There's green on pretty well every plants even those that have pretty blossoms. It goes with every colors, even with the blue sky. Nature sure is wise, Your part of the country looks absolutely beautiful in green.
