Green Friday

A spring, not long ago, we visited Soap Lake, WA.  The lake has minerals in it that form "suds" on the shore - so it is called Soap Lake.  The water is very healthy and is piped into the cottage we stayed in - for wonderful mineral baths.  Our skin was so soft!!!

There is lots of green around Soap Lake - especially in the springtime.

At Summer Falls State Park the grass is lush and green.  .  .


A clever tire swing, fashioned into a horse - in a nice green yard - just the place for girls and boys to have an adventure.  Giddy Up!

Mountains and green forests.  .  . 


The bright green on the edges of the chasm at Palouse Falls.  .  . 

A sparrow on a rock, the green just sets him off perfectly.  .  .

Birch trees near our cottage - dressed out in their spring leaves.  .  .
