RGB 0-100-0 (Green)

Good evening from the wide brown land. Theme Thursday once again and colours rule as they do each month although I wish someone would suggest Aubergine or Rustic or Magnolia rather than the basic primaries and composites . . ..

Here in the land of water shortages, red dust and willly willys . .on verandahs we sit, listening to crickets and cane toads and watch sunsets and the sugar cane burn . . . Of course I'm lying I live in the suburbs of Sydney and whilst it's quiet the only sign of moisture on most occasions is frogs, drips on the tin roof and the sound of sweat seeping down my cleavage. Actually recent rain has been a Godsend and the world is filled with 'green'.

We still can't water our lawns or wash our cars with a hose . . but until I actually went through my Flickr account I didn't realise how much green there actually is around here. And if anyone has some spare time this weekend, I could do with some help mowing and whipper snipping . . .



A welcome sunshower on a balmy summer evening



New Years eve fireworks in emerald green . . .


Latrine door graffiti'd by inmates at Melbourne Gaol


Huge cactussy thing at Mt Tomah Botanic Gardens . . reminded me of the perfection of a nautilus shell . . .



Ocky . . former lead singer for Aktor . . the job's open if anyone's interested. Taken at Home Bar in Darling Harbour


Where there's a dark, moist corner . .greenery survives and thrives. Bella Vista Farmhouse . .


OK . . .one for the boys to ogle and for us girly swats to wish our ass looked like that. . . C'mon . .you know you want it!

Spill, Baino... what were you in gaol for? Was that your phone number scratched into the door?

Ocean Girl said...

I love each and every one of your picture. You have a great green collection. They are all amazing. If I have to choose a favorite I choose the last one but the firework is grand too.

laughingwolf said...

Pam said...

Nanc Twop said...

Fun! - that last one would make a very unique St. Patrick's Day poster too... is she driving the snakes out of Ireland?

Ribbon said...

Roy said...

Nice collection of green, Baino. I wonder if they let you name unknown cactus-y things in the botanic gardens? You could name this one the Fibonacci Cactus.

Everyday Goddess said...

That sunshower is positively Eden-like.

And yeah, that is an ass worth wishing for.

Ropi said...

How did you upload your voice there? I am asking it because I was donating my blood for healthcare and my hand hurts now so it is not pleasant to type. Moreover it is fun.

nick said...

What a brilliant take on the theme, green photos! The pic of the sun shower is amazingly atmospheric.

Janice said...

What a fabulous collection of green pictures, my favorite being the first one. Breathtaking.

JeffScape said...

Is that even a woman???

Poetikat said...

That top photo is gorgeous! (Looks like something out of Avatar.)

I love the succulent plants. That's a great shot as well (the cactus).

What's a willy willy? (just asking).

steph said...

Great shots as always, Baino

Would love to help you with your mowing and snipping but I'm a bit low on energy reserves at the moment.

Now, I'm off to tell Grannymar I've found her an outfit for Paddy's Day!

Tom said...

you got some skills! Always great pics. Wish i could figure out how to take action shots...it's all a blur with me.

Ronda Laveen said...

Did I read something about frogs licking the sweat from you cleavage? Maybe I better put my glasses on and re-read this post:-)

faery of the wilds said...

great pics...

Babysis said...

I love green....wish I had some pretty green in my wallet! Top pics Baino....

Love to help you mow, but alas, same problem here!

Amy said...

Great pictures.

Kath Lockett said...

My eyes are green. does that count?

You take a mighty fine set of photos, but surely there was a bloke doing the butt-wiggling thing as well - or was he wearing red?

Susan at Stony River said...

Great greens! That top photo is smashing, I love it. Glad I'm not standing in it LOL

C.M. Jackson said...

great shots--I am taking the last one and planting it on the refrigerator door--I can dream can't I?? happy tt

Dreamhaven said...

Tip top post for green. Happy TT

JGH said...

Every photo better than the last!
(BTW I proposed straw for the April color ;-)

Bimbimbie said...

Tsup*!* I love our sun shower days, so true when you look back over photos and compare how brown we were just a few short months ago even if the grass and weeds are bursting out of the earth I'd sooner be standing in a puddle than a crack*!*

Kris said...

There is a lot of green down here in Tassie, and I'm not talking about the tourists.

River said...

I most certainly do wish my ass looked like that; not to mention the rest of me.
I love the green fronds in the corner of the log cabin, and the green cactusy thing is amazing.

Megan said...

You can be a member of the committee any time. Ask away!

Quickroute said...

shake a that ass - damn it I even wish my ass looked like that

Vagabonde said...

I wish I was there to look at the first picture. Now for the last picture – I don’t wish to look at it – I wish I had a derrière like that!

Wally The Walrus said...

That first picture of the rain... fantastic. Wish I could take photos as good as these.

We have relos who have had to temporarily relocate to Sydney - raining all the time is what we here.

We've had the first rain in about 6 weeks here in Adelaide. Everything is brown and dry. Time for a drink.

Grannymar said...

I love the sun shower and can feel the freshness from here!

California Girl said...

JUST getting around to TT readings today...way too busy at work to do this hahahahaha!

The photos are fun, varied and really nice. You must have rec'd alot of funny comments on the very last photo. hahaha! (yes, too big of a hurry to read all the comments today too)

lettuce said...
