My sister gave me this charming silver box. I was especially happy to have it when it came time to celebrate with white roses! 

A special Merry Christmas to dear Judy !

 

For somehow, not only at Christmas, but all the long year through, the joy that you give to otheres is the joy that comes back to you.

Back at the first color post - purple - I told you that all these images come from the folder I compiled during my first blog experience, many moons, pixels and aps ago - woooooooo! Green has been my favorite color for my whole life and the images in this post run a grand sweep of experience. The Alba rugosa's first bloom - brave enough to bypass tight roots of that flourishing grass (and I don't mean lawn). The frog - Christmas ornament turned treasured bauble. Hand blown glass flower visiting nature for the photographer only. Hellebore in the little agate bowl that broke (nice to have its image). Charming Louisianna fence (how green and lovely it was there). Our new street sign. Porcelain Vine - (how enchanted I was by those turquoise and purple berries). Queen Anne's Lace (memories of childhood). Rose leaf extravaganza - it looks like a simple picture but took hours to create so you could see how diverse, once again, the rose world is. Thorns - too scary not to photograph! A machine part with super-glued mirror, hanging on our back fence.

 

Green is the prime color of the world, and that from which its lovliness arises.

~ Pedro Calderon de la Barca

 

 



Yellow Indeed

 

Abutilon

You create your own decoration. You choose your color, you choose your mood . . . (if) you are depressed, you put some bright yellow and suddenly you are happy.

The Images

Bells of yellow abutilon share the fence line in our side garden with yellow roses. The camera is looking down on a pillow of Lady Banks blooms. The pale pistils of cream California poppies. The gorgeous swirl of the opening Elina rose. I love this image of how my hand can so simply block out the sun to protect an image of Lady Banks from sunflare. I think this must be a white ground cover rose. This last image is the darling quilled bloom of the mini Topaz Jewel.
