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.
And, finally, my own back yard!
