Being green is quite easy for me being my lifestyle since I was in my teens…..way back then. Living in the Australian bush, having to rely on my own water supply, heating and most recently cooling and solar power to supplement my existing electrical consumption, I guess makes me think about what I do and the impact on the environment.
I also belong to Landcare and assist others in restoring or rehabilitating their patch of land as well as doing the same on my place.
This post is a mix of just green as well as nature doing its thing. I love this Pitcher Plant photo. Not many plants consume insects to survive. I’d be drawn to the colour as well.

This is a bit of green colour and how nature comes back after a fire
and with Eucalypts, the first flush of new growth is usually red
Once the red growth has established, the green takes over to do the plants chlorophyll and photosynthesis thing
Butterflies do wonders for plants reproduction and pollination. I love the annual migration of Caper White Butterflies although last seasons migration there wasn’t as many butterflies.
Bees are always busy
Whether sitting on a plant or flying to the next one to gather nectare and pollinate the flowers
Birds, like this Eastern Spinebill, also have a part in the pollination process as the pollen sticks to their feathers and is transferred from flower to flower as the drink nectare as well
Tiny Scarlet Honeyeaters also move pollen as they drink
Bigger Blue-faced Honeyeaters get right into the flowers and sometimes find insects as well as consuming nectare and spreading pollen.
Bigger birds like Wedged-tailed Eagles take care of the carrion and unfortunately road kill
It is easy to be green and enjoy yourself at the same time
