Spring green

A month or so ago I was looking for spring, and then a few weeks later I found blooms galore. It occurred to me that I shouldn't only be taking photos of spring flowers, but I should also be gathering some 'spring green'. The intense, bright, fresh, yellow-green that we are being treated to so much of at the moment.

We went to the Parc André-Citroën in the 15th the other day and they have coloured themed gardens. One of the colours was green, le jardin vert.






There was plenty of green at the Porte de Montmartre food market the other morning. I bought some of this coriander.


Parc Monceau is a riot of intense colours at the moment with signs of new growth everywhere.


This tree looked fabulous with the bright green against the silvery tree trunk.


The leaves on this tree in the Marais were just opening out, I love the contrast of green against blue.


At Parc de Bercy it was hard to tell which were the greenest, the trees or the pond.


A mallard duck waddles in green in the Square des Batignolles.


Here are some green grass glasses at the Parc Floral.


In Donegal in Ireland you find this intense green in the middle of summer.




Some people take this spring green business so seriously they like to match their bicycle lock, with their bike, with spring green.


Some animals like to be spring green too...with a touch of red, not to overkill.
