greener grass

 How gorgeous is this
As the old adage goes, "The grass is always greener on the other side."
I have long admired the artwork of Fairfield Porter and the use of green.
The green lawn in the background provides such calm to the couples awkward silence. 
 The crossed arms say so much.
 This wonderfully chic vignette also has a very special work of art, Made by Girl.
More green.  Greener grass.  I can never get enough green.

This week will be all about green.

Green is yours!
It's even the color in your birthday....

What a great Monday post! Refreshing!
(Thought of the My Fair Lady song: It greens so green...)
Do you remember the movie with Katherine Hepburn?

I was just outside starring at our lawn and praying for it to grow and become more lush. I'm done with winter!

I am very fond of green especially when married with blue on canvas.
Have a happy Monday, too;-)
