I see… Green

This green-themed photo collection has been slowly coming together for a while now. I’ve found more photos over the last few days and its great to be able to publish at last! Thank you to contributing photographers! All images used with permission.

The collection starts with clambering out of green goo…

“After getting a total kick out of these grass flip flops I spotted in a gift shop in Sedona [Arizona, USA] and seeing where someone who lives in the desert southwest might enjoy these, they reminded me of this saying Grandma used to say.” :

“Don’t let the grass grow under your feet!”

        1. On the original post for the grass Flip Flops there’s a blogger who says she has a pair and that she loves ’em. If she visits my blog I must remember to ask her about them as she has been to my blog sometimes!

    1. Hahaha, yes, the grass jandals! They’re pretty different! We’re just heading into spring and I actually quite fancy some grass jandals for the summer! I’ll come and take more of a look around your blog as soon as I can – really looking forward to seeing more of your posts.

      1. Hey Liz,

        Thanks for coming and taking a look around our blog! We’ve been a bit slow on writing new posts recently because we’re approaching the hectic time of year when we move our lives back to NZ for the summer 😃🛫. Working like mad trying to fit everything in! We photographed the UK native red squirrel (adorable!) last week, though, so that post is in the works!

    1. Jodi, I find your blog really inspiring so its particularly lovely for me to read your kind comment! Thank you very much for sending some cheer my way – particularly welcome today because its a dismal, gray, rainy day here in Dunedin, NZ!

  1. Green has to be my second favourite colour after blue, and the shades of green you have brought together here in this blog are really quite something, Liz! Now how often will you have to mow those grass flip flops? 😉
