Last time on the blog we covered all things green in supporting roles. Now let's look at green as the star of the show, because nature can do her own accessorising.

In the plant world green is the colour of hope and renewal, the show nature puts on when all is well.

Nature strives continuously to lay out her green carpet despite the best laid plans, or pavers, of man.

I suspect that if the human race died out the first thing that would happen is a blanket of green would slowly cover us over the course of a few centuries until the earth thought it was a dream we were ever here.
