GREEN

That is the word for this week over at
over at Song-ography the song is
"It's not easy being Green"

So I am thinking some green photos are in order here.
I haven't gotten a whole lot of Green shots lately and that
is surprising since it's my favorite color.  So I am going to show you some
of my Favorite Green Shots from the past.














I am pretty sure that living in the Brown desert all my life is the reason why
Green is one of my Favorite colors.


I did happen to get a shot of this little guy at the pet store..  I snapped off the shot and
then was told to put the camera down..  No photos allowed..
I was told to delete the photo.  I told them I would.
Oh no.. I Lied..  Here it is, I hope they don't catch me. 

Happy St Patrick's day my friend.

I see some corned beef and cabbage in my future. 

Hugs~

Your green walking places in number 1 and 3 are simply stunning, inviting one to walk those paths. How delightful that would be.

Nicki said...

What's not to love about green - especially these. And don't you just hate it when someone irrationally shuts you down when taking a picture. (sometimes I can appreciate the concern and restriction - but there are times when it is 'what the heck?') A pet store of all places. Great shots - thanks for sharing them with us.

Claudia Willison said...

There's a lot of us who haven't seen much green around lately... but soon. So, I am resorting to old(er) photos as well. Yours are awesome!

p.s. that store is stupid, not taking a snapshot?!

Lynn said...

I have come up with a new word for your photos SPLENDID X3, they are so gorgeous. I wouldn't have deleted it either. That little butterfly is called a 'piƩride du chou' here :-).

Julie Tucker-Wolek said...

I want to live there!!! These are GORGEOUS!! And lol to the pet store story!! Hope you don't get caught! LOL!!!

Barbara said...

Linda you have got to be kidding me, I never knew you were mphlinda on instagram. We have been friends on there and I never knew that was you here. Gee wiz I am not the smartest chick in the nest. I am sunnybarb on Instagram. :) I found this out from the beautiful park image from this post. Gee wiz.

TexWisGirl said...

glad you saved that bootleg shot! so cute! those first couple just washed out my eyes. SO pretty!

Adrienne said...

These are gorgeous - love the froggie! My favorite is that bench under the trees - the light is swoon worthy!! I'd like a few hours to sit on that bench!

Karen said...

I can see why these are some of your favorites! Each one is gorgeous. The focus on that illegal shot is perfect.

Jacqueline said...

Gorgeous greens, Linda! I hope you are o.k. - I read of your loss and felt for you. Happy to see you posting again - God bless!

Heather Jensen said...

What beautiful photos, Linda. You have become and amazing photographer. Totally jealous of your skills. :)

Carol Blackburn said...

Hello Linda, love all the green. Hmmm, sounds like that pet store is selling something they shouldn't. LOL I hope things are good with you and family. Enjoy your day!

kathyL said...

Oh, the light on your shots is beautiful! Love the lush shots of the trees!

Crafting Queen said...

These are really beautiful photos. I just love the light on the first one and the macro shot of the leaves is super. Have a great week.

Sue Lelli said...

Your green photos are just STUNNING, Linda, and you made me laugh that you lied! LOL! It was worth it!

Charlotte Wilson said...

I love your green photos in celebration of St. Paddy's Day!

Have a happy one!

Kamana said...

Kathy McB said...

I would have asked if the lizard was in a witness protection program! Lol. What a fabulous shot you got, glad you didn't delete it. Love that crystal clear focus on his eye. Fabulous! Such beautiful photography you have here...but I am not surprised. You rocked the prompt this week! Thanks for joining in at Song-ography.

Tamar SB said...

These are all so gorgeous - the water droplets on the leaves is my personal favorite.

Kim Cunningham said...

Love that little contraband lizard. I never could understand why anyone would care that you took a photograph, and then would insist you delete it. Glad you kept it!

JansArtyJunk said...

Wow..look at all that lovely green you have captured Linda!! ...and so glad you were a rebel and didn't delete the last pic, so that we could all see this sweet little fella!! ;) Thanks for sharing!! Jan x

Manuela said...

Cynthia Schelzig said...

ohhh beee-you-teeee-fulll. I know all the Irish are lovin you. What inspiring shots! I had to smile about the last one,,,but hey,,,he was worth it..fab shot and I am constantly being told to put the camera away....especially in furniture stores or specialty shops as they think I am the competition out scoping them out:)....have a nice Sunday evening.

Gayle Price said...

Beautiful photos my friend and beautiful shades of green. I do love the very first one, makes me feel I am actually on that path in that forest. Oh and I love the last one; you naughty girl ! xx

Sylvia said...

Gorgeous photo's in green, Linda, I love your borrowed lizard photo...I have a chameleon that is green when he wants to be seen, but I don't have a camera like yours...or maybe it is just me! I love green too. Happy St. Patrick's to you as well!

Buttons said...

Oh Happy St. Patrick's Day and your photos made me smile even the stolen one:) Hug B

Cathy H. said...

Such beautiful greens. My favorite is the one that has the bench...such gorgeous shades of green!

McGuffy Ann said...

Beautiful greenery here! I love it!

Ida said...

These are just awesome. So loved #1 & 3 - They just were gorgeous.
I can't believe you were told to stop taking photos in a pet store. I mean what did they think you were going to do with the pictures of the pets? I loved the lizard too so I'm glad you didn't delete it.

Charlene said...

Gorgeous pics Linda!!!Happy St. Patricks Day my friend!!

Our Neck of the Woods said...

These are so beautiful, Linda! Especially that last one. You rebel, you! ;)

Gail Dixon said...

Your green images are so beautiful! Great waterdrops and that first photo is magical. Wonder why the pet store wouldn't let you take photos? Seems silly. I probably would have done the same as you--pretended to delete. Haha.

Wendy AppleApricot said...

Beautiful shots! So many beautiful greens... I'm happy you didn't delete that great shot! If you told me you took it in the desert, I would have totally believed you.
Big hugs to you

Lori said...

I certainly see why these are favorites! Funny about the pet store! Have a wonderful week...

Lisa Graham Art said...

Stunning green world you have offered us today my friend. I wish I could be a little butterfly riding on top of your camera for a day.

Terry said...

Green is beautiful and with your photos, more so! I love all the photos, but the third one gives me such a peaceful feeling! I would love to sit on that bench and just think about nothing at all! Oh, were you around for CA's Shamrock Shake?? Hugs!

Deanna said...

Just perfect images of green...one of my favorite colors as well, but alas have not seen this color in awhile...a long while. Thanks for sharing yours, restores my faith that green will return.

Laura Delegal - Leroy Photography said...

Green IS my favorite color. Beautiful all. You're such a rebel.

Davi said...

Gorgeous green pics Linda, I especially love the forest path one! I can just image walking there
getting away from the summer heat. Yes I think it must be a desert thing, green is my favorite color too :)

Leanne Barnett said...

I just lo ve the light in that 3rd shot- so beautiful!

Catherine said...

So much wonderful green Linda - love that top shot!
We don't have very much snow left here so I am hoping to see some green soon!
Hope you are having a wonderful week!

Tracy said...

Green, green, oh this is my favorite time off year when everything turns this wonderful color. :-) Beautiful shots. Now didn't you know that the lizards agent was just trying to protect him from the paparazzi. ;-) He's a big star you know. Godzilla is being released soon. LOL. Hugs!

Green is gorgeous, and you've shared it so well!
I'm in love with the lizard.
Looking forward to green in our part of the world.. it'll be a couple of months yet. Below zero & a couple feet of snow on the ground yet. (makes me dream of green all the more!)

Emily Keaton said...

Wow, these are AMAZING, Linda!! You have such an awesome eye for capturing scenes with a camera. I am in awe of your skill!!

Colleen Dietrich said...

Why on earth wouldn't you be allowed to take photos at a pet store?? That's weird.

Loved all these green, green photos!

Stella said...
