Our Beautiful World Challenge

Hello Friends!

Over on the Our Beautiful World Blog the new word prompt challenge is GREEN!
It just so happens I snapped a few awesome photos that fit this challenge while on vacation a couple weeks ago and would love to share them with you today.

This beautiful green sunflower was among the various GREEN  glass sculptures at the Chihuly Garden & Glass in Seattle, Washington.

While walking through some of the outdoor gardens near the Space Needle in Seattle, Washington, I spotted the dew on these leaves and just had to snap a photo (via my phone).  Love the end result.

These next two photos were taken while walking through the rain forest on our way to the Mendenhall Glacier in Alaska.  This first plant is called Devil's Club and it is one of Alaska's poisonous plants.  You can also see the Hemlock in the background which is also poisonous.  Yikes ... need to be careful walking through this rain forest ... I was careful to stay on the path and use my zoom!  LOL

Absolutely beautiful foliage and moss walking through the rain forest.  
Isn't Mother Nature amazing!! 

I hope you've enjoyed my photos and I look forward to seeing what everyone shares for this challenge.  Each and every challenge at the Our Beautiful World Blog shares some AMAZING & BEAUTIFUL peeks into what a beautiful world we live in.  Come see for yourself!!

 Thanks so much for stopping by today!
Wishing you a fabulous day and even better week ahead!
Until next time and as always . . .
