Spring is coming, and so much has Gone Green, as Carmi says, over on writteninc where he challenges us to find GREEN around us.

I have gone all natural, as there is so much just springing up in my garden, and the park.   But go to the link above to see what others have come up with, and perhaps post your own!

 The willow trees are always first out in the park, and I love the lovely lime green of the young leaves.

Another acid green is the Euphorbia in our garden.   It tends to spread everywhere, but I dig up the unwanted bits and let the rest wander.   It is a really bright colour in dark places!

I thought my hostas in pots had died after the exceptionally wet winter we had, so I was delighted to find these shoots coming up strongly!

The lovely yellow tulips come green first as they break out of the buds.

Enjoy the green of Spring and taker your camera.   (Sorry if you are in the Southern Hemisphere!)

The willow and pond makes me want to fetch my fishing rod!

I so love that acidy-yellowy-green, Gilly! Beautiful photos.

We are waiting for our tulips to open and now I have to check on our hostas - there's nothing in sight yet. Love the willow.

Wonderful photos make me pins for willows, hostas and tulips! We have to get rid of the snow first!
