A Photo A Week Challenge : Green


Ireland is known for its greenery, probably due to the fact that it often rains here – softly, gently, and sometimes heavy, pouring cats and dogs!.  A well known and often used Irish expression is ‘It’s a soft day, Thank God’  There is an old ballad about Ireland, written by Johnny Cash, called ‘Forty Shades of Green‘ and these photos taken in Killarney National Park give some idea of the many shades and colours of green in nature.

    ‘Where the breeze is sweet as shalimar’. Yes, no problem finding green in Killarney.
