I love the color green. It calms me, much like blue calms others.

It always catches my eye, everywhere. Especially in nature.

Holland is a very green country, filled with greens of every hue, especially during spring and summer.

Still, I managed to find the brightest green not during the most "green" months of the year but in late February, in the woods, in The Hague.

Greener than green.

A park filled with green-toed giants.

I will be sharing with you a soup featuring the color green, soon.

In the meantime, stay green, and I don't mean with envy.


to see the beauty that is honey,

hear the sound of reindeer,

see the work of a Greek photographer,

and hear the song I've been listening to again and again and again lately.

  1. green does for you what electric blue seems to be doing for me at the moment..... usually i'm a red kinda gal........ for the love of colour!

  2. for me, march is totally green :-)

  3. Thanks for sharing your inspirations... I needed that this morning as I sit and try to find something about which to write. Green is an amazing color and here, in the Southwest U.S., it is not a color we take for granted. Daily I am surrounded by green but not the green of your Nederländish moss, nor the green of leafy oak and maple trees. It is a green of peace and solace (for me) - a silvery, sagey green that others may see as brown. When I think of this color, I can almost smell it, as I can smell the desert after the rain. Now, on to write something... ~ David

  4. Lovely, lovely greens. The softest greens are in the forest and are mossy colors. This is a perfect Sunday afternoon post to read. Thanks.

  5. Green is so soothing I agree, I tried to get a green theme going in my study as I thought it would help me write! :)

  6. love those "green toed giants"
    I also love the stark contrast of mossy spring greens against the dull brown of winter--positively glows.

  7. I like your green. Now, to head out and find some of my own.

  8. Green is a happy color to me. It is always full of possibilites, like planting something and watching it grow.
