Back to Green

I've said before that I don't have a favorite color, but green is a color that moves me so! Something transformational happens to me. I feel happy and hopeful and full of wonder. All the shades and hues, all the variegation and variety of greens fill me with contentment.

I took these photos Sunday while walking in the Oakland hills with Bill and Annie. What was most notable from our time in the woods was the sound of bees! Either we were near a hive, or hives, or it was just a great day to be out and about for all species. We collected some small stones from the brook plus some moss covered pieces of bark for our terrariums.

Oh yes. And we saw a beautiful fairy girl resting near the trunk of a tree. She reminded me of someone...

Are you sure that you were not in Eden? It looks so peaceful and uplifting. Fresh air, warm breezes and your family - doesn't that encapsulate Eden?

Thank you all for your fairy girl comments! Seems I'm not the only one who loves green.
