Easy Being Green…Gardens I’ve Seen

I hate green.  Green is my least favorite color, at least in clothing and accessories and household goods.  I don’t wear green on Saint Patrick’s Day, or any other day, for that matter.  And I’m the opposite of an “environmental wacko”, since I don’t believe that humans are a blot on the landscape, or destroying the planet, or any of that stuff; “green energy”, “green buildings”, of no importance to me.

However, I’m quite fond of green landscapes.  When I visited Britain in 1984 for the first time, I was totally blown away by the green fields demarcated by hedgerows and low stone walls.  I was fascinated by the beautiful landscapes in the Highlands of Scotland.  My readers will have seen dozens of the pictures I took of the area around Cambridge, which is the most beautiful place in the world.  I’m a rotten gardener, but I have visited many beautiful gardens in my travels.  Here are some.

  1. Yes, I agree with you, most people don’t wear green, they feel like potted plants, or wash out, so they say, only because they don’t know how to combine it, I say. Beautiful photos.
