WordPress Photo Challenge: Green

I like the green in Indonesia.  There is so much, and so little, in Jakarta.  Jakarta has palm trees and greenery everywhere, but no parks, no lawns, no big green spaces.  Travelling out to Yogyakarta was very refreshing – lots of rice fields and parks and green spaces.

The mountain in the one shot is Mount Merapi,  Yes, the one that blows up every few years with devastating results.  It’s lava and ash are what make this ground so great for growing green things.  A blessing and a curse, I guess.


I’m a little late…

…on Photo Friday’s Challenge this week, but I was having trouble finding anything that met the topic of “Greenery“.

This was taken quite some time ago, May I think, but I think it might be green enough to meet the challenge.  It was taken at Cultus Lake, above it, in fact, on the Seven Sisters Trail.  The “Seven Sisters” are seven old growth giant Douglas Fir trees.  They are impressive.  If you ever get out to Cultus Lake, BC, they’re well worth the walk.


Orphans

Oh, hi.  It’s been raining here a bit, and when it stops the rain leaves all of these little orphaned droplets behind.  Some of the plants in my front yard have been adopting these little orphans and displaying them in such a lovely way.

BTW, I’m feeling a bit silly this evening.  Hooray for weird.
