Everyday Green

As a gardener, I'm surrounded by green.  Every day.


But yesterday I realized that I'm also surrounded by "everyday green."  Stuff I use every day -- and kind of just . . . take for granted!

My water bottle, for example.


Couldn't get through a workout without it! 

Or my incredibly handy market basket.


I keep this in my car and use it all the time.  For shopping.  For errands.  For carting Jenny's stuff up to the lake.  Incredibly handy.  (And it folds flat.  Bonus.) 

Or my watering can.


Rubbermaid.  Indestructible.  Steady.  Useful.  I bought this one before Erin was born. . . and I've been using it every gardening season since! 

Or my gardening shoes.


Steady-Freddies.  Oh, sure.  I've been tempted by the much cuter, happy-patterned gardening shoes available now.  But these green "Sloggers" (that's what they're called. . .) have served me well for nearly a decade, and I imagine they'll hang in there for a lifetime of garden slogging!

Or my other trusty gardening tools.


I'm surrounded by everyday green. 


How about you?

What is that gorgeous flower in the last photo? What a fabulous color combination!

The best example of "everyday green" that I'm surrounded by would have to be all the give-away green depression glass I've collected over the years. Most of it isn't USED everyday as much as admired, but there are some pieces that are used daily!


I'm wearing a green shirt right now. Does that count?


We live in a condo, but we have large open spaces and loads of trees and flowers. I am surrounded by green, my favorite green! LOVE the colors in the flower!


I love that basket!

I actually have that watering can and wore out a pair of those Sloggers. *L* My current pair are the ladybugs, btw.

Great post!


I don't have green everyday things...mine are mainly dark red, purple or pink. But I do have lots of green growing things!
Love the last flower...looks like a petunia but I've never seen that color combination before...


I just saw those exact petunias yesterday at Fleet Farm -- I was captivated.
