5 Fats Giveaway...it's a Mystery

...exactly how many SHADES of GREEN there are in
nature...but, there are a LOT.  I can't imagine how flowers
might look without the beautiful "backdrop" of the GREEN
stems, leaves, etc
Then, there are all the GREEN fruits and GREEN vegetables.
Besides the many NATURAL greens the beautify our world,
there are MANY fun things that can be and/or are created with the
colors of GREEN
It's St Patrick's Day this week so...I'm thinking about GREEN.


I like lots of GREEN things. What about YOU?
SO...help to solve my MYSTERY...
What are some of YOUR favorite things that are
GREEN?  Maybe it's something in nature?  Maybe a food?
Maybe GREEN brings to YOUR mind something fun or funny?
Scroll thru these pictures and see if one of these GREEN
items might be IN YOUR list.  Or, you might have OTHER
GREEN ideas.










To enter to WIN* the 5 Fat Quarters for this week,
please leave a comment with at least 7 GREEN things.
They don't have to be favorite things and if you have more
than 7 things...please feel free to list as many as you like!
