PHOTO FRIDAY GREEN

SHE DIED IN 1870

Green...I first went through my archives and found a picture of Ireland that was the epitome of green. Then I found myself taking pictures at the Switzer covered bridge in Franklin Co. yesterday that challenged the green of Ireland.

Today I had one of those unencumbered, no demands on me kind of day. A lazy and delicious sort of day. I went to once of my favorite places to take photos, the Lexington cemetery. I could kick myself for missing the beauty that this botanical wonderland offers in spring. Everything is 1,000 times 1,000 shades of green now.

I found my Photo Friday entry in my picture wonderland.

Fabulous.  I remember going camping with dd's class years ago and being astounded by how MANY shades of green there are.

It's just so beautiful. I was told many years ago that all shades of green go together and complement each other and this is proof. I know the cemetary well. Anne

I love walking in old cemeteries - but I liked it best in the autumn when I lived in the Ozarks. By the way, it's not nice to let us dusty Texans see too much green - - we get green with envy!

I wish I could've gone there with you - I think I would've enjoyed going there.

Beautifully done.

Boy! I Really love this photo! I paint, mostly in oils, some water colors. Would you mind if I used or copied your photo for a painting in oil?

Great pic, Mary. You only not have the ability to wield a pen but also a camera. This one is worth more than a million words...
