Hope you like Green? If so the UK is a green blanket at present. Come and take a look, I promise you. Summer has arrived and as crops ripen, our fields and woodlands have turned their many shades of green, punctuated by colourful flowers. 

The Green fields of England
It seems the older I get the more I appreciate the colours around me, green being the most prominent. So as an ode to the colour I've tried my hand at a bit of poetry! Here on Sketches we're willing to try anything. Let us know what you think. 

Green leaves on our trees
Fluttering gently in the breeze.
Hedgerows, lights and other delights
A welcome site, a painters highlight

I hope you like green? Take a look out of your window, try it now. What colours do you see? Hopefully a bit of green. If you think about it green is everywhere. From traffic lights to trees, fields and hedges. Soon though the greens will turn to orange and brown, so lets appreciate this most vibrant of colours whilst we can.
