creeping ivy

My iTunes: You Are the Sun by Sara Groves

How ironic can you get -- I decided yesterday that this week I would do Project Green, and can you guess what project Anna has started? Yes, Project Green! So, I will be joining her this week in trying to find green to share with you!

I thought this image would be a nice one to start with. I really like the look of ivy, especially when it climbs around the windows of old houses. Unfortunately, I didn't find this great place State-side -- it's an old image from when I lived in London. Since I can hardly get out of bed right now, I really can gallivant around looking for green things, so the pictures this week will be pulled from my stash.

2 days until surgery.

Looking through the archives is just fine. Don't they say that really good art is timeless? Or did I just make that up? Besides, it's not like you don't have a good excuse.

This is a great first post for project green. I clicked on the image to see it larger (which I recommend to everyone else reading this). There are so many shades of green here. The overall feel is one of contentment.

In case you run out of green in your "stash", be ready just in case the surgeon will be in a green mask and gown. :)

I was there when you took this :-) I think it was probably when you spent a few days with me watching the kiddies.

Hi Christy,

Love this - the composition is wonderful!

Two days and counting - prayers are still being said for you.
I'm laughing at Robert's comment.
Can you imagine the surgeon's eyes when you whip out your camera! :)

Haha -- Robert and Carletta make me want to whip out my camera and get some hospital pictures... I guess we'll have to wait until later this week to see what I come up with! = )

Interesting take.

Anna said...

Love it...reminds me of the Grym's Dyke. Did I spell that right?

Lovely photo.

Good luck with your surgery. Even if you don't believe in things like reiki and energy healing, I recommend that you check this man out. He works for free and he is awesome.
