green things

On St. Patrick's Day it seems fitting to make a short list of green things I love:

* asparagus * "Green" living * spinach * pistachios * turtles * lizards *Key Lime pie * John Deere Green * Green Bay Packers * clover * grass *trees
* soft, fresh, new leaves in springtime * peas--straight out of the pod while standing in the garden

* mint chocolate chip ice cream * lily pads * Godzilla


* tadpoles * frogs * baby grasshoppers * beans * cactus (cacti?)
* the first shoots coming out of the ground in spring * Spring Green!

But never, not ever do I drink green beer. The only green drink I love is a margarita on the rocks, salt on the rim.

Spill it, reader. What green things do you love?

  3. Beer has never been something I place at the top of the menu... even on St. Pat's Day. I do love pistachio pudding cake though. YUMMERS!

  4. Spinach salad
    Granny Smith apples
    Cabbage
    Mint ice cream
    tiny green leaves in the spring
    the smell of fresh mown green grass
    The green light of the sun coming through the leaves in the forest

    I do not drink green things.

    Green Jelly Beans!

  11. Definitely the pale green buds of spring. The pale green sweater my daughter wore on her third Easter. Pale green peas, fresh from the garden. The "dill" green color on my kids' bathroom walls.

    I'd take purple over green most days, but there are so many delicious shades of green...

  12. Fresh asparagus and English peas eaten raw while standing in the garden.

    Also, green shoes. I just ordered a cute pair of green patent ballet flats. Let's hope they're as darling in real life as they are online.

    Happy St. Patty's Day to Melissa O'greengirl, love Jen McOntheedge
