Pick a Word in April

I am getting to slow at responding to Paulas Pick a Word this month.
Life is getting in my way and I have so many things on my mind. I shall have to see what I can find won’t I?

Green is the Prime Colour of the World

The inspired quote from Debbie at Travel With Intent

“Green is the prime colour of the world, and that from which its loveliness arises.”  –  Pedro Calderon de la Barca

I am having difficulty in finding the right image from nature. So much of my world is green. Maybe I should just jump in and pick a few that show the loveliness of nature.

Something Different

The word prompt from the Lens-artists challenge #40: Something Different

Recently I had some visitors from Taiwan who enjoyed their tea. They had something different to drink their tea from when travelling. I found the set quite interesting. I hope you do too.
