Weekly Photo Challenge: Green

From my mom’s garden. Gotu kola (Centella asiatica) is said to improve memory

The first thing you will notice from the highway is how green Sorsogon is. From the stands of trees lining the highway, the ricefields and the hills, everything is green, green and green.

Green takes on many shades here. There’s ricefield green, there’s forest green, there’s manicured-lawn green. Green is on the table, in gardens, through windows, and along the highway. Green is the color of the distant mountains after a quick shower. It is the color of the sea in April, when it is at its calmest. Green, in fact, is everywhere.

Here are some of Sorsogon’s greens:
