WINGED GREEN

I love green. Green is calm and serene.  That’s why I would have had every room in our house in every shade of green if I only had my way.   That is also why I love taking picture of leaves and grass and trees. That is why I am glad that the first theme for LIVE AND LOVE OUT LOUD’s Nurture Photography-Fall Challenge is Green.

So today, after school was done, I set out to take photos with green in them.  This time, however, I tried to veer away from foliage.  Just to have a little change of pace.   Happily,  I chanced upon these little things.

Yet I wonder –

What happens to them when the season gets colder?

Isn’t this green-hued bee pretty? I assume that it is a bee, a different kind of bee. 😀

How do they survive, assuming that they survive at all.

Pardon me.  My tropical bred mind had never contemplated such things. 😉  And until this time, I have not truly spared a thought for a fly except on how to swat it.

I admit that once I stop thinking of a fly as the  pesky bug that it is, it  can be pretty.  As for the bee, I have no issues with it.  It is welcome in the garden as long as it stays away from me. 🙂 I am glad to know that there is more than one variety in the backyard.

Finally, I got this photo.  I know.  I know I said that I would lay off from foliage photos for this challenge.  Yet, I could not resist taking a picture of the sun peeking through the tiny hole on a hosta sepal – that little leaf-like piece that  is left on the stem after the flower dies.

I had fun trying to fit the setting sun into that little hole.  🙂

I really like garden themes, so I am joining this fabulous place THE ROSEGARDEN IN MALEVIK. If you love roses and gardens, this is nice place to visit.
