Searching for Roy G Biv - Green, update 1

If you've greens to share, just leave a comment here or on Julie's blog and we'll be happy to link to you. I'll be updating tomorrow night after we return from a trip to Dollywood. It's spring break week and we're playing. 
-------------------------

Please pardon my lateness at updating and linking your greens. Our Dollywood outing lasted all day, in fact, we closed the park down. By the time we returned to my parents', we stumbled into bed and were asleep the second our heads hit the pillows...at least I was. Can't vouch for the rest.

Stroll on over to see the wonders that have been found:

Julie has a kaleidoscope of greens
Fiona's Thursday Thoughts addresses ordinary, yet verdant, things
Sharmon has captured spring arriving beautifully
Jill shares cards from a postcard swap 
Mary Ann has arty greens
Maya has an electic selection...including tea
Charlton Stitcher has a landscape of greens
Lisa shares Florence's greens
Barry has patinated greens

Have you got green that we've yet to link to? Just leave a message here or on Julie's blog and we'll be happy to include your post. Enjoy!
