Easy being green

Green: the natural color. A color that is hard to recreate in paintings. A color that is easy to take for granted. The color of grass.
 The color of Wisconsin in the summer.
 A good camouflage color for a small cloud forest moth. 
A color that has an affinity for blues.
A color that comes in many shades and loves purple.

Hi Carol, I'm back from wonderful green Wales and Yorkshire. I love your photo's, they remind me of these places.
But how on earth did they manage to get the grass to stick to the bikes?

They used a Scotch brand spray adhesive. I noticed that they kept spritzing the bikes while they were in the sun. It looked like a very labor intensive project! And people think knitters are patient...Thanks for your kind words and I'm glad you had a good trip.
