Photo Essay: “Green is the Prime Color of the World”.

“Green is the prime color of the world, and that from which its loveliness arises.”
Pedro Calderon de la Barca (Spanish poet and playwright, who lived in the 17th century)

The whiteness of winter is beautiful.
But when you see only white color, sooner or later you want something else.

You enjoy the first splashes of green color.

Thin blades of grass…
Opening tree buds…
Tiny leaves…

We associate green with nature, youth, peace, harmony, relaxation.

“If I keep a green bough in my heart the singing bird will come”.
       Chinese proverb

 Though you can associate it with illness, jealousy or loneliness…

 “Green makes me think of silence, or maybe it's loneliness. I get the feeling of a terribly distant star”.
               Kobo Abe

But let’s not talk about sad things…

The nature wakes up! Enjoy!
