Header Challenge 18th May 2011 - Green

The choice for the theme for this weeks header challenge has been chosen by me this week and I have gone with “Green”.

As challengers we have done other colours as themes in the past most recently “Red” so I thought it would give a good diverse range of photographs for peoples headers and in their posts. Please prove me right people! I’m sure you will.

Green seems to be the colour of the moment for nature all around us here at the moment. The early spring daffodils and tulips are all finished and many of the other Spring flowers in the hedgerows are coming to an end too. There seems to be a hushed anticipation in green ready for the summer flowers all to burst on to the scene.

The woods  are just beautiful shades of greens, silvers and browns waiting for the summer blooms…

The fields and river banks are rich shades of new green growth with their tall grasses and reeds…

Even the watering hole at Woburn is surround with green even if they are weeds, I don’t think this monkey cares…

If you you look carefully you might even find a bear hiding in the green of the countryside…

Oh look he’s come up to say hello!

Say hello…

Don’t worry I didn’t come across a black bear roaming around the English countryside, he was in Woburn Safari Park.

I hope you are enjoying both the greens in the photos on my blog today but also the greens all around you at this time of year. If you can get out and about and enjoy the lovely rich vibrant greens that are growing all around you. Don’t just wait for the summer blooms or think oh it’s just green when is the flowers coming step back and you will see that the plant next door may be a slightly different green, together with others, creating one big tapestry of colour to enjoy.

Go take your camera out and have fun!

Green grow the rushes ho,
I guess with lack of water, we are lucky to have it so green, as you show.

That is green! I really really love the first photo in your collection, it reminds me of here. Imac says you're lacking water?! Bummer, want me to mail you folks some of my extra? I'm sure I could send it bulk rate!
