It's no surprise that the conservation movements use the color green as the touchstone of their campaigns. It keeps us cool as we lounge beneath the trees, lie on grassy lawns, gaze at the flowers or eat the leaves.
The little flower above provides ground cover on a neighbor's yard, while the fern is used as a decorative edging along another. I loved the accent the purple flower created, and the way the sun filtered through the fronds and cast shadows in the second. Besides, they are so green, I took their pictures a few weeks ago, hoping I would be able to use them today.
