Going Green

I don’t care what Kermit the Frog says, I think it is pretty easy being green.

Robin calls it “a visit from the green man”. I call it finally feeling like spring. We’ve had some good rain, followed by days of sunshine, and my world is finally going green around me. The neighbors’ houses on the street behind mine have disappeared into the green:
Finally green

When I look around me I see fresh green leaves and green grass and I love it.

Next weekend, with any luck and a LOT of work, I will be greening-up my garden. I went to my favorite garden center yesterday for my “annual pilgrimage” and made my plant purchases.
Getting ready to garden

I’m yet to get a picture this year, but I have seen that wonderful “flash” of green – the ruby throated hummingbird. I’ve seen several taking sips at my feeder and flowers over the last week.

I do, however, have pictures I can share of another bird, in fact a bird family:
baby robins (1)

A robin has re-used the nest that was built on my flood light last spring and the 4 babies have quickly grown.

I hope your world is going green too!

  2. Isn’t it fun? Buying new plants and just sitting and letting all that lush green flow over and into our hearts? I’ve bought some plants this past week – a few flowers for pots, some herbs for pots – and tomorrow I plan to head into town to get a few more. Of course, I do have to plant them too, perhaps I’ll get those that are sitting quietly in their little pots into their new homes today.

    • It is fun – shopping for those plants is probably the most fun of all the tasks that go along with the growing season. 🙂

  6. I love green too. And really love your baby birds who I suppose have flown the coop by now. We’ll be planting pots and weeding this long weekend. And we’ll be grateful to be able to do that in sunshine and relative warmth.

    • Thank you Dawn. I’m hoping to get to those sorts of things done this weekend as well. My work has suddenly been made more challenging by a slight injury, but we’ll see what happens!
