it's not easy being green | song*ography ...

... I think it could be nicer being red, or yellow or gold
or something much more colorful like that.

 It's not easy being green.

It seems you blend in with so many other ordinary things. 
And people tend to pass you over 'cause you're not standing out like flashy sparkles in the water
or stars in the sky.

 But green's the color of Spring. 
And green can be cool and friendly-like. 
And green can be big like an ocean, or important like a mountain, or tall like a tree. 

When green is all there is to be
It could make you wonder why, but why wonder? 
Why  Wonder

I am green and it'll do fine, 
it's beautiful! 

And I think it's what I want to be.

  2. Fun and delightful!
    I loved all of these and especially the cakes and glasses.

  3. Love your take on "GREEN".. Fun photos indeed.

  4. Great post and pics. In my childhood I was a little grey mouse and as a young adiult I did the opposite and became a colorful girl because I didn't want to be invisible anymore. Now I'm just ME with and without color :) Love the glasses, great "eyecatcher"!

  5. Hi Nicki,
    Oh lovely pictures, eacn and every one of them! What just hit me most was the cute little doll - figure ... Looking boldly in the eyes - great perspective! Oh those days of playing and collecting ... Your pictures tell personal stories, awakening things on the people admiring them!

  13. Awesome take on the song. You had me with those cookies and then I spotted the sunglasses (aren't they fun) and then that mosaic of the ocean, mountain and tree those were just fantastic. Chuckled at the Gumby figure as well and that Doll. Outstanding post.
