Green travels well in life

It’s surprising how many shades of green you can find when you’re not really looking

It was there in Leunig art at an exhibition in Healesville
just up the road a bit from home

In beautiful stained glass windows – Rio Vista historic house Mildura.
A bit further from home – right on the Vic/NSW state border

And on travels really far away from home
Like in Hong Kong at Kowloon Park (2017)

Decorating windows and doors in the Old Town at Kavala – in Greece (2014)

On a little bit of whimsical advertising further away still on Fogo Island
just off the northern coast of Newfoundland (2013)

Then there’s the green you can see on the road

Or in the paddock

It shows up well on different sorts of signage.
For towns

For important companies

For necessary safety information

Road condition signs near Condamine Qld

Travel up north and you’ll find a giant green tree frog on the giant Golden Gumboot.
The big green board has loads of information about the local area

But this is the green I’m really looking forward to seeing again
The ‘distance to’ sign at Proserpine telling me that after 4 days on the road there’s only 65km to go until I’ll see the green sign at the front gate of our Winter home 😊

Green is the colour for March…

Jude’s (Travel Worlds) photo challenge for this year (2021) is entitled  Life in Colour  This month (March) the colour has been Green…….another of my favourites 😊.
And with St Patrick’s Day having just gone you may even find Sue (EC) and others have shared a belated bit of green for Sunday Selections which you’ll find over at her blog (Elephant’s Child) 😊.
Terri at Second Wind Leisure has also chosen Green for her Sunday Stills photo challenge

So with green in mind let’s see what I can find.
(In my archives or ‘newly minted)
Around the house and in nearby suburbs

A few groceries still to be put away, a little bit of green in the plastics drawer.
And a lone wheelie bin on the nature strip (waiting to be put away).

An old photo of our green rotary line – when the garden was fairly new in that spot.


There’s the old green painted kitchen chair we used on the Afternoon Tea Day

A beautiful sea green Italian bowl filled with a collection of seaside mementos
sand dollars, tiny bits of coral, shells and green sea glass.

You never know what you’ll see on the back deck.
Green tape measure, green grass, green tarp on a chair???
(as well as my much loved, much missed beautiful brown shadow)

Beautiful shades of green at my nearby park with it’s tall trees and windy paths

A wet day in Main Street Croydon – the whole street scape has now been ‘redesigned’.
So these green circular seats have been removed
Also the green benches on the other side of the street

It’s not too far to Hookey Park Mooroolbark with its magnificent green roofed rotunda
as well as the big bird sculptures

Down the road in another direction to Montrose where the green road sign
tells how far it is to the top of the hills

And lastly the little green jacket that was the cause of so much emotional stress
Is now in Grandma’s hands ready for the little one to wear coming home
