Green is a lovely color

So it's going to rain every day of this holiday weekend (11 days w/ some rain now). Frog is happy, though. He is sitting in the little pond near our house and he's going to sing all day if it stays overcast.

Rain slows down garden bed preparation, but not geocaching. Yesterday we did another excursion to put back in action the travel bugs DH picked up on his trip east. This one was in a park with trails through the woods. It was hidden on the other side of this "furry" tree. Oh, so many shades of green!
The color caught my eye & I had to investigate. Bet the hummingbirds enjoy these. Lonicera ciliosa - orange honeysuckle.
Yes, an injury. I slipped (probably on a slug). What's this - green blood now?

Nice photos - you seem to have much more interesting moss where you are! Our moss isn't photo worthy :)

I think ‘green’ in the garden is very underrated – and you’re beautiful pictures brought this home. We’re often so busy cramming in coloured flowers or shrubs that we miss out on the beautiful shades of green all around us …

P.S. Any chance of a picture of ‘frog’ in his glory? Wish I had a frog in my garden … I only get the occasional tourist frog from next doors pond …
