Green, Green, It's Green They Say - -

Spring time is green time in Washington - everything bursts forth in the most beautiful shades of green.
 The raspberry fields are ready for this year's crop - and we are ready too - not long until they are ripe.
 The workers bend the vines over and secure them to wires running  between the posts.  The bending makes the plant sprout more side branches and grow more raspberries.  The same works with roses too, if you want a really lush rose bush.
Green covers everything as we meander down country roads.

I love it when everything is green and new. It only takes a few days with strong winds before the green begins to look a little tattered, so make the most of it while it is there.

Do those raspberries have to be harvested by hand? They're so delicate, I imagine they must be.

Everything looks so pretty and green! I have never seen raspberries growing before and didn't know that's what they looked like.

We have a lot of green here too ... I've got two bags of green weeds sitting outside the door waiting for tomorrow's trash collection .....
