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.

  1. great collection Brian, as soon as I saw the ‘green prompt I thought of the lovely frog I’ve spotted lately … you got the best shot.
    Watched aghast as a currawong consumed a grasshopper this morning …know they have to eat but the killing seems torturous, nothing quick about it!

  2. never heard that Kinks song before – they sure were a special sounding band…
    and enjoyed your green today—
    the Hawk Moth Caterpillar is similar to a little fella that was eating my peppers and tomatoes last august – and I just made a photo to share for the book promo – I will have to show ya

    1. You should listen to the whole record. Village Green Preservation Society is a concept album. Has some great songs.
      The little band I played in at school used to do this song from the LP
