Not So Easy Being Green!

Weekly Photo Challenge: It IS Easy Being Green!

Well, actually it’s not so easy to be green in March in Montreal!

Easier in England where I’ve spent the last few weeks. It was a very stressful and sad time. But every morning during the 45 minute drive to the hospital I would soak in the colours of daffodils, primroses, and the blossoming trees…

In particular I found the sight of the green, green fields spreading out each side of the road very comforting.

When you see something green you know it is alive, right? It also means balance, calm and harmony. So it is a great color to have around when you are trying to restart yourself after a hard day. It is the reason we feel so great when we are out in the open. Color Psychology

I arrived back in Montreal just in time for the biggest snow storm of the winter so it was back to white. It snowed again all day yesterday (Friday). No green in sight….
