Sicily in Grassy Green

March 17, 2011

In honor of Saint Patrick’s Day–and impending primavera–I give you green.

In honor of Italy’s 150th birthday being celebrated today, I give you green (one of her tricolors).

I’m also dedicating this post to my Japanese friends, wishing and praying for greener days ahead.

  • no Irish that I know of… though it is in the Italian flag! It’s mostly just a childhood favorite that slowly grew into a healthy obsession 😛

  • haha whoops. Sorry about the comment on the pink post. should have looked around more carefully first 😛 Best colour ever by the way. Just sayin’

  • I wish we could buy finocchio at that price here!
    It’s like $3.99 for one! I miss the cheap veg!

      The finocchio in the US doesn’t just cost a bundle more, it’s flavorless compared to the Sicilian variety. 🙁

    That last shot with the humble huts surrounded by farmland looks like it was frozen in time from 600 years ago.

    What fantastic greens. I can imagine sitting under that carob tree in a vast sea of green. All day long. Great site. Thanks.

    Just lovely, Jann. How green is your valley! Your mountain and cityscapes, too! Love to see all the fresh veggies, yum! Yes, let’s all say a prayer for Japan: Saint Patrick watch over and protect them. Peace, Gio

  • Jann, your green image collection is just as formidable as your pink one! The first image has such wonderful depth of field and the one with the leafy vegetables, I feel like I can almost eat them off the screen of my lap top! Incredible captures! I especially like your sentiment of wishing Japan “greener times ahead.” Lovely thoughts.
