Green!



Happy Saturdays to all!

I took my camera to campus the other day and had a good time.



This isn't the stack of papers I am currently grading though it resembles it!




This magnificent plant was near the entry of one of the buildings.  
The light was just right for this gorgeous hue of green to come through. 
No editing at all on this picture! 




I found this in the nurse's office.  
She had a whole tree full of these wonders.
I am sure by now the beautiful butterfly inside has released itself and is flying free.

Hope you all have good weekends!


Green is the prime color of the world, and that from which its loveliness arises.

What a nice green beginning to my day!

That leaf photo is wonderful. Such detail. And, of course, it's always a treat to see a chrysalis. I honestly don't think I've ever seen one "in the wild."

My aunt taught at the college level and so does my bestie. I've always told them- if you would stop assigning all those papers, you wouldn't have so much grading to do. LOL Green is DD4's favorite color!

Lovely green - makes me think of spring, which is a cold winter's length away now ... thanks for the visual reminder that it will come again.

We need a little green around here as we lose it to fall colors. And of course all the green we're paying to college tuition.

Your campus is turning green while
UF is painting the trees blue.......
for a reason of course.

Enjoy the remainder of the day...

That is a monarch chrysalis. I am always amazed at the gold on them--makes you wonder what creates that and why. I have no idea.

LOVE the green feature today. We are slowly, but surely, losing our "green" here as fall takes hold and the leaves are dropping.
