Balance....Harmony....Green

When the weather warms enough for me to put ferns and plants on the porches I know that winter is truly over.  I stepped back and truly enjoyed the first look at the ferns and realized that green is so very important to me.  I cannot imagine a world without green.


Our large Yucca did not make it through the winter. (the one on the left) We bought it last year and I guess we let it stay outdoors too long.


I moved them both outdoors and look what a few days of sunlight did for this plant;


Green....new life....growth.....



GREEN: leaves, trees, moss, grass, salads, U.S. money, frogs and iguanas. Green represents   regeneration and growth,  nature,  change, healing,  abundance,  endurance, perseverance, persistence, self-esteem, environment, health, good luck, renewal, youth, vigor, spring, generosity, inexperience, envy, faithful love,  truth, freedom, balance, harmony in nature.

Balance, harmony.......green

I cannot wait to put out my ferns....and buy a couple more. The first of May is usually when it is safe here to put out plants. So glad that winter is over!!!!!!!!!

Lovely! Mr. Fern made it through the winter but I know he'll be happy when he gets moved outside. That won't happen until May here in Ohio. I love green, too. It's become one of my favorite colors in recent years!

Oh I am so jealous! I was telling my husband that I'm turning into a "crazy plant lady;" I have about six plants lined up inside on our kitchen table so they can eke a little bit of sunlight without freezing to death outside. ;)

I came pretty close to putting a few of my green friends outside a few days ago, but the weather still keeps dropping down into the 30s here overnight. :(

It's fun seeing what the great outdoors look like in Arkansas, thanks for sharing your pics! :)

Blessings,

Lovely post! I love the lush greenery of Spring, too. My plants have been outside since February, and I already have tomatoes! Guess that's one of the perks of living in the deep South. :)

Hi Nanny, Yes---I love seeing the GREENS of Spring. Ferns are gorgeous --but they don't like me too much... I just can't keep them pretty all summer... They need a special place --and I used to hang them under the shade trees... They'd do fine for awhile --but then they'd start looking pretty bad. I haven't had one in a few years... BUT--I love them.
Hugs,
Betsy

So, so pretty. Isn't it wonderful to see green? It's so funny because on my run everything was so green it almost didn't look real! I love it. Very majestic...
Can't wait to see all the green at your house soon!

Too soon to put my plants out but I think they are yearning for a bit of sun!

Lovely!

I just ordered a couple of yuccas to put in a swampy area of our yard. I am looking forward to them!

I am so glad it is warm. I really do not like being cold.Spring is the most beautiful season but where I live it is short. It was already 89 yesterday!

Boston Ferns are my favorite! (It's where I'm from.) I have too much sunlight on my balcony so have gone to those who love sun all day. Never met a shade of green I didn't love.

This week has been the start of cold winter weather down here in Melbourne and I'm not liking it at all. Can't wait for next Spring!
