My green movement

Abundant in nature, the color Green is Life and it represents peace, growth, renewal, health and serenity to me.

How about these smart water plants who lure the beetles with food inside at 8 pm and eat them at 12 am?

Et qu’il est alerte mon corps”

  1. Michèle, as usual so good… very refreshing.They are all good but my favorite one is the fuchsia flower. Thanks amiga.

  2. Dear Michele:
    My green eyes are not green anymore,
    you took away all their color.
    Look into your pictures once more;
    you will see the green colors I die for.


  3. Tout simplement “Magnifique”………..
    Cela donne envie de réactiver ton lien sous FB.

  4. Dordaneh joon … love your posts … specially this one. But have to say I think this was one of my all time favorite posts. Miss you. Kisses to you and the family.

  5. Green is a beautifully peaceful luscious color as you show so well.

    I hope it is a good omen for the Iranian resistance movement.

  6. Dear Michele

    This post is simply breathtaking in its ability to be mundane, obscure and revitalising..

    It was like a whiff of fresh air with a lemony scent…


  7. Dear Michele …
    من از طریق ای میل هایت در جریان کارهای زیبا وسلیقه خوش توبوده وهستم ولی از حساسیت تو برنگ سبز بعد ازسالهای دوری از سرزمین مادریت مطمن نبودم که انرا هم از این کلیپ ساده وسبزت دریافتم برایت ارزوی ایامی خوش وبرای مردم سرزمینمان آزادی وخوشبختی آرزو دارم

  8. Dordaneh joon,
    I love your pictures, they are very inspiring and gorgeous!… When I look at them seems time has never changed, only we forget to pay attention to the beauty and truth of life! We often take everything for granted thinking it will be tomorrow… I admire your work!
    Thank you and good luck to you.

  9. Dordaneh joon :
    I love the poetry in your work and the sensitive soul behind it. Thanks for sharing.
