Weekly Photo Challenge: Green

The topic for this week’s WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge is “green” and it’s a challenge indeed, since I’d be hard pressed to find anything green around here right now.  Winter has  come early this year and we’ve already been blanketed in snow.  Here’s a photo taken from the window of my home office – I think if you really stretch your imagination, you could call the boughs peeking out from under the white stuff ‘green’…  It’s sad that this will be the only green stuff in view for the next 6 months.  (Sigh… summer was on a Tuesday this year.)


This is the time of year when I look back on my summer photos to remember what real green actually looks like.  Here are a few of the photos that will keep me going until spring…

The vegetable garden – just after weeding:

The greenhouse, everything growing fast…

The first baby cucumbers, tomatoes, and raspberries – all little green promises…


The view from the porch of our new cottage – we just bought it this fall and haven’t ever stayed there yet. Can’t wait for spring to head down to the east coast and see all this green (and blue) stuff in person.

And a bizarre grasshopper – boasting red and green.  Hmmm, now that makes me think of Christmas… 😐
