It's Not Easy Being Green

Green is NOT one of my favorite colors.  I am pink girl to the core.  But pink isn't one of the 8 basic crayola colors.  So, I thought maybe I should go with a color that doesn't "speak" to me and try to listen to it for once.  Kermit the frog's "It's Not Easy Being Green" came to mind.

Here are some of the things it said to me:

Left column:

Green is . . . May day with all the hope of Spring

Singing the song in your heart

Lush, Verdant Gardens, Tall Shady Trees, Places to Hide, Places to Seek

Green lights leading me on my journeys.

Right Column:

Green is  . . . relaxing in my porch swing

Serpent Mound - where I fell in love one summer

Science and nature, nourishing and healing

Road signs leading me home!

The macro shots with the plants (and the dinosaurs) were taken in the garden of my friend, Tracy Jo, who is prominently featured at the bottom center, exalting the may pole!

Hope you like it.

Linda - Serpent Mound is an effigy mound in Southern Ohio, shaped like a serpent. It is believed to have been built by the Adena/Hopewell and/or Fort Ancient cultures. http://ohsweb.ohiohistory.org/places/sw16/index.shtml The coils correspond to sun and moon rises throughout the calendar year and the sun sets just over the head on summer solstice sunset. It's on wikipedia, too, if you want more information. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serpent_Mound

I also chose green, even though it isn't my favorite color. Actually, after doing the project, I like it better than I had previously thought. It seems to "go with" many things. The different hues and shades seem to be easier to work with than the blues (which are my favorites). I like your arrangement, thoughts, and macro shots. However, I have never heard of serpent mound. What is it, and where is it?

Serpent mound...haven't been there since I was a kid, really should take the kids there someday. It really makes a nice focal point. Foliage has such details and all different. Lot's of journalling too!

Quite interesting how so many different places green showed up but it all went together very well.

I find the various shades of green very soothing. It is a very peaceful page and I love it.

That serpent mound is very cool Deborah! Did you fall in love with the place - or did you fall in love with someone while you were at the mound? Thanks for exploring a "new" color. I love all the bits of journaling you've added to your page. :)
