"Green is the fresh emblem of well founded hopes. In blue the spirit can wander, but in green it can rest." ~ Mary Webb
This green represents the hope of May flowers to come. The iris spread both by splitting of the root and bulb system and by seed. This is the seed pod that forms after the flower has withered away.. it is the hope of things to come. Even these are gone by Autumn, carried away by birds to parts unknown. Personally, this macro shot reminds me of those little latex cat balls, not quite spongy, not quite hard.

I thought it quite funny that this past week or two we have had three different photo memes with "green" as the topic. This one tickled me the most as it seems that the administrator of Shutterday, whose topic this week was "anything but green", suggested the topic "green" to Macroday. I guess that is one way to make sure yours is different. This will be Macroday's "green".
