Blooming Friday - A Pinch of Green

Katarina of Roses and Stuff must have been thinking of those bloggers who are still in the winter season with thick snow in their gardens when she themed her Blommig Fredaq (Blooming Friday) today - A Pinch of Green. In that cold grey/white wintery scene there is hardly any green or any colour can be seen at this moment except maybe brown. But still in some warmer parts, a bit of colour here and there is beginning to show out of the thick snow. Here in the tropics, we have greens all year round, but still looking for a bit of green on a flower is not in abundance either. I was looking the whole garden front to back, for a streak or a pinch of green in any of the flowers in my garden and I found these.

thats all you get from this flower...its not going to bloom any bigger


green stems of water hyacinth with its green guest
hydrangea turning from green to purple

some seeds from a purple lily plant...some are still green


a tiny bit green in the centre of Impatient


flower of long bean, greenish with a bit of light purple


streaks of green on this white spider blooms





which part of this flower is green can you see?...its green stamens of eggplant flower




water orchids




A pinch of green in a cold, cold white wintery scene is just like a pinch of salt in a bland and tasteless food. Will warm your heart and makes you want to jump with joy and celebrate!







At the same time since its Fertiliser Friday, Im flaunting my blooming flowers hosted by Tootsie of Tootsie Time. Lets visit her for more blooming flowers!

You are very creative the way you found your pinch of green, and it made me see a different aspect of your flowers and appreciate them more.

A Pinch of Green. I guess you had to take effort to find green in pinches. It's a whole lot easier to find them in splashes. LOL!

Lovely! Have a nice weekend/Gela

Thank you Bernie, water orchid's dangling tiny white flower is one of my favourite subject.

Thank you Carolyn, greens are everywhere but to find touches of them here and there is a bit of a hunt.

Hi Leslie, thanks for dropping by my small garden and become my follower, appreciate it!

One, you are right, too much greens in the garden, but to find a pinch here and there is a lot harder!

Thanks Gela, you too have a nice weekend!

Rainfield..you are absolutely right!

Joy, thats why we have gardens, greens soothe the eyes and mind!

My pleasure Gunilla, you too have a nice weekend!

I like your selection of green touches. How lucky that the guest on the Water Hyacinth was green too!
Have a lovely weekend.

Hanni said...

Ah, seeing all your green was certainly like a bit of salt in my food....especially since when I look out the window all I see is white!

milka said...

I had a lot of brinjal flowers but most of them don't have stigma. And why is your spider plant always flowering ah? Mine only last for 2 weeks.

Casa Mariposa said...

My flowers are starting to wake up after a long cold winter! I saw a few tiny green leaves the other day. Hooray! I love your spider plant leaves. Very pretty. :o)

IreneL said...

Lovely photos with a little pinch of green!
Have a nice weekend!

p3chandan said...

Thank you Carolyn, I love both you winter scenes and your green hydrangea.

Yes D it was such a perfect a coincidence! Thank you. I dont seem to be able to access to your website D..

Thank you Madame C, you too have a great weekend!

Hanni, not long now, Spring is coming soon!

Milka, maybe those are male ones..but not sure la..My spider plant only has 3 blooms left after the heavy rain these few days.

Hooray! for your awakening garden! Soon there will be beautiful blooms again. I love both the flowers and the leaves..

Thank IreneL, you too have a great weekend!

Lrong said...

The eggplant has really pretty flowers eh...

threedogsinagarden said...

Your little pinches of green seem very exotic to me. What an unusual and understated flower that first image was! The other blooms are so pretty and delicate looking.

p3chandan said...

Mr Lrong, yes they are, simple but pretty and cute.

Jennifer, thank you. I dont know the name of the plant, but the bloom is so simple and understated as you said.

catmint said...

i love the photos - it is endlessly fascinating to me how our gardening climates are so different and how that affects what we can grow. our seasons mean such different things - i can't imagine having heavy snow.

Trädgårdsmakare Hillevissan said...

Just wanted to say Hello, after visiting your blog! Lovely pictures,
Greetings from Stockholm, Swedenn

James Missier said...

I really like the first picture. The flower look so cute.

Andrea said...

Wow i lost my long comment. I said i love the way you showed your green esp the stamen of eggplant and the green visitor of the hyacinth. I posted greens today and just saw in some comments that it is the theme of BF. I will follow even if i'm a bit late there. But i really like the way you did yours, making it the basis for posting and shooting. haha!

Lrong said...

Just updated my post on shrimp avocado salad...

Katarina said...

I think you found some excellent exampels of a pinch of green! I especialy like the green stamens of the eggplant - very clever!

p3chandan said...

Rani thank you for being my follower and dropping by my small garden.

Thanks Paula, spring is coming your way soon!

Hi TH thanks for visiting my garden!

Thanks James, I must find out the name of that plant.

Thank you Andrea, even we are in the tropics surrounded by greens all year round, it was hard to find touches of green here and there in my garden, that were all I could find!

Mr Lrong thank you, will come and visit your blog soon, sorry I was not well these few days.

Katarina, thank you for your compliment, I love your meme of Blooming Friday, so creative and interesting! Thank you for hosting!

Stephanie said...

I have that pink aglaonema (first pic) also. The flower is plump and pretty ;-)

p3chandan said...

Thank you Steph for the name of that plant.

My garden haven said...

Your pinch of green is just the correct amount for the theme this week.Katarina should be pleased.
