Foto Finish - Green

Foto Finish - Green-my favorite color, how could I resist!
Lichen on a fallen Hemlock tree.  The fallen tree one of the victims of an Asian aphid.  Taken April 4, 2009 on a sad hike through what was once a well preserved old growth forest called the Joyce Kilmore Memorial Forest.  The greens drew my eye and have fascinated me ever since.  I keep it as my desktop image.  The lovely variegated colors would make a wonderful fabric.

Keep dreaming...Colleen

I love the bargain bin at Sew Original,
 buy one already discounted remnant and get the second 1/2 off!

I love your picture. I'm am a little bit nuts about Hemlocks I have a couple in the yard. Stupid beetles have killed most of the Pines. Maybe my Hemlocks will be spared. Have a nice day:)

That's a great shot, Colleen, and a good narrative too. Thanks for posting to Foto Finish.

Colleen, I can see at least five beautiful fabric in this picture - when are you going to start designing the fabric?) Lovely picture - proves good things can come out of bad.....

That's a beautiful picture. I wish we took better care of our natural resources, too. Looking at beauty is one of God's gifts.

The lichen is a very pretty green - almost matches the colour of the ribbons in your blog background.
