Alabama Greens

I  real enjoy all of the memes related to colors.  It opens up so many avenues for posts.  Last week I discovered a new meme devoted to the color green.  I used lots of nature shots because I could not recall having any green items in my archives. Today, I  came across the shots I took last spring, on our annual trip to Alabama. I was surprised at all the green I had captured.  

We made this trip in May shortly after the southern parts of Missouri and Illinois had suffered a huge flood.  Driving through Illinois, we encountered many detours to get past the flooding.  This antique car was sitting high and dry on a roadway were everything around it was either still under water or boggy with high water marks on the walls of the buildings.   

 This green tank sits beside the Montgomery Highway near Brundidge, Alabama.  I believe it is part of a National Guard Armory.

While visiting with my Aunt in Dothan, Alabama we had lunch at a restaurant called the Red Elephant.  The walls were decorated with lots of original paintings of animals done by an artist known as Cornbread.  This green frog was one of them.  

 This green dragon was on a carousel located near the food court of the shopping mall in Dothan, Alabama.

I'm linking this post to Green Day, Color Connection and 


  1. Isn't it funny how that happens? You don't even remember the colors until you have a meme to participate in...the only one I do is the Ruby Tuesday one, and now I am always on the lookout for Red! Love the antique car and the carousel horse! We were in MO last year shortly after the floods - went through the southern part, over into Paducah, KY - so sad all the water. I hope everyone has recovered some by now!

  2. I love your photos, specially the green frog;-)

    Dropping by from COlor COnnection!

  3. Love all these great GREENS! That frog is so cute! :-)

    I suppose you may have seen my "classy wall" on your trip out this way...I'm glad you've been here before and enjoyed it. It's definitely different than the SE! Enjoyed your hometown pics slideshow too by the way!

  4. I love that green dragon, so pretty and unique!
