March Photo A Day 17 - Green


Green is the prime color of the world, and that from which its loveliness arises. 
~ Pedro Calderon de la Barca
(1600 to 1681)


Even in these last days of winter,
it is easy to find bits of green in the heart of the cedar swamp;





the rich green of moss, and the silvery green of lichen,



green backdrops,


and a green cedar roof overhead.


"Walking on thin ice" through the cedar swamp in my bright blue boots, it is easy to see the truth in de la Barca's quote.  Perhaps the loveliness of the world does arise from green. Today's photo prompt, Green, was a fun one to seek out on a gray sky day in middle March.

Where ever you are, whatever the weather, I wish you many shades of green.

The first of greens wake up our senses and make us more aware what is around us. It grabs my eye every year.
