Weekly Photo Challenge: Green

Green is the prime color of the world,
and that from which its loveliness arises. /P.C.de la Barca/

An optimist is a person who sees a green light everywhere, while a pessimist sees only the red stoplight. /A.Schweitzer/

If I keep a green bough in my heart, the singing bird will come. /Chinese proverb/

  1. I find green so calming. My office walls are painted sage green, and there is a rug on the floor that’s predominately that colour, too. Then, I have my computer on a desk that looks out of a window at a shaggy green lawn and lots of architectural green shrubs and trees. When I’m sitting at my desk, it’s as if I’m in the garden. Can be a bit distracting though, if I see an interesting bird, or my resident albino squirrel out of the window.
