Gallimaufry#30

Just a gallimaufry of green-themed photos ...

FROM THE TRAVEL ARCHIVES

Zaanse Schans

The Roman Baths
Green tram in Croydon


Eclectus parrot
Surul Appam
Surul Appam —  a green-coloured folded pancake made of rice flour, filled with grated coconut and palm sugar that originates from Tamil Nadu, India.

Green is the prime color of the world, and that from which its loveliness arises.

  6. Dearest Veronica,
    Love these travel photos and you made me happy for showing something from my birth country and from the country where we lived and worked; Roman baths.
    Well, we also worked in Tamil Nadu so that recipe made me mouthwater.
    Hugs,
    Mariette

  12. I was taught as a young boy that green was a perfect match for everything, since all the trees and flowers have green leaves, no matter what the colour of their flowers and fruit.

  19. Ooooo, I love when you do color themed posts. Green is such a cool color, and in nature it represents calming and relaxing. The green bus, green houses, green bike, and green bird, I love it all! You even have green rolled up pancakes on your post. How unique and Yummy they must be filled with coconut. That green Parrot is really something else. Thanks for sharing your green post. It really made me smile. Nel's favorite color is green. ; )

  28. I think I have that same green plant, if I'm right it's a syngonium arrowhead.

  29. I love your green photos - so much loveliness! That green pancake sounds sweet, I would like to taste it even though I'm not too big on coconut.

  31. Green is the colour from Spring and Hope! In Germany we have a child-song "Green, Green, Green are my clothes, green, green green .... and so on"

  33. We love bright colors and the green is great, just not the water, that looks nasty!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I do like all this green! But not so sure if I want to eat green pancakes though...

    Have a wonderful Wednesday!

  35. I can remember my mother taking me to the Roman Baths as a chid. We were allowed to paddle in the water back then. Maybe that is why it is a murky green colour! I have been several times since and I can't remember ever having seen it with clear water.I like the windmills and the green pancakes look tasty.

  36. ...I love the windmills!!!

  37. Nice collection of green things. Haven't had surul appam in years. We're lucky we can grow pandan leaves in Florida, to achieve that green coloring in desserts.

  38. One of my favorite colors, highlighted so beautifully in this wonderful theme idea!

  41. Love both the green "pictures", the tram and the parrot :-)

  42. Dear Veronica,
    I love your travel photos... and I think I have a longing to travel again myself... I also saw the Dutch windmills years ago, but I didn't know the Green tram. And where did you photograph The Roman Baths? Right in Rome? Beautiful, I didn't know. Very nice, the green parrot. And I actually ate the delicious pancakes filled with grated coconut and palm sugar in Kerala / India, but they weren't green there... Too bad, because green is my favorite color :-)
    All the best from Austria

  47. Yes, it is a lovely color, Veronica Lee. But, as Kermit the Frog would say, sometimes it's not easy being green. That said, I enjoyed this theme.
