Sunday Stills: The Color Green

This week's challenge might have been difficult for the snowbound, but all I had to do was walk out the door. The most recent weather front moved eastward and the flood waters have receded. We're now looking forward to a series of dry days, so I brought my camera with me on Indy's morning walk.

This is my favorite photo of the day taken on the high tech campus across the road:

The moss, which grows everywhere, appeared neon green this morning. I liked the texture of the tree trunk and sunlight highlighting the moss:

This is the first day I noticed my mother's bulbs have broken ground. A promise of Spring to come:

And as we stepped inside following our walk I noticed the interesting folds of my down vest hanging on the coat tree:

Green is an easy assignment in the Willamette Valley. To see how others met this week's challenge, visit Sunday Stills.

I can't even say how happy it makes me to see bulbs sprouting anywhere in our neck of the country. Finally some hope this winter really will end!! That's my kind of green.

Nice shots!

At first I thought that moss looked like a fern until I saw the second shot. Just Beautiful :)

Now I've got a hankering to visit Oregon. I was there a couple of times when the kids were very little and I just loved all the green, especially the moss growing on trees.
