And I mean I like green all around me! Yes, I have a green lawn (finally) and some plants with green leaves, but I grew up with lush greens of every hue, everywhere, all the time, year-round. And I miss it living here in the dry climate of central Oregon.
West of the mountains, there is lush, wet, dewy grasses, moss hanging from the tree limbs, shades of bright and shades of dark, and in between. I feel most serene when I'm surrounded by those greens, and I guess I'm feeling a touch homesick for my "home" west of the mountains, where green lives.
And the needles of the pine trees,
to a deep rich green.....
shimmered with droplets
like clear crystals.
~Billie Letts, Shoot the Moon~
And I recall those Johnny Rivers lyrics:
"And I sing:
Green green, it's green they say
On the far side of the hill.
Green green, I'm going away
To where the grass is greener still."
Can you hear the music?
I'm most serene when I'm surrounded by green. I'm homesick, but I'm sure it will pass.
Is it green where you live?
