'G' is for Green, Green Grass near Home & Gander too (abc Wednesday)

The fields are green right now (and maybe for a couple of more months) along the meandering path of the lower section of Fred Hesse Jr. Community Park.
(As a kid, I used to love to listen to my mom's 45 record with Tom Jones singing the 'near' title song.)

What gorgeous green! I'm intrigued by that sinuous, snakelike path.

Maya said...

That is quite a path! You are not getting anywhere quickly on that one...

Lois said...

Very pretty. I can't wait until our grass is that green again!

Kate said...

Green is a very welcome sight, isn't it just about this time of year? Great photos, esp. the top.

That is so refreshing to site, from us who are still covered with snow. ^_^

G is for Gold

Hi!
Considering I have been looking at white for the last few months, as in snow, this is totally beautiful! Have a great day!

What a great looking trail.

Are those mostly tile roofs? It would appear to be flat tiles in this picture.

Everything appears greener at PVDP.

Gorgeous green. Fat geese, for sure!

Goosie goosie gander wither shalt thou wander, Upstairs and downstairs and in my lady's chamber.

Maybe you had to be there ...

Petrea said...

Where did you find a gander?

That's great.

Wanda said...

Beautiful ~~ That path is amazing. The colors so vibrant.

gogouci said...

That's some trail. You have to walk a mile to travel 100 yds. I'm sure the geese find your lush green park extra delicious.

Bibi said...

The path caught my eye, too, and I've been trying to find a 'g' word to describe it!

gorgeous.

but now you've gotten Tom Jones stuck in my head!

Jacob said...

I never thought I'd say this, living in Florida, but I envy you your green grass...it's been so cold here, our grass froze and it's still all brown!

Really like that meandering path. Good for a contemplative stroll.

Thanks for you kind comments on our blog, Tash! Hope you have a great day!
