Kasauli, Himachal Pradesh

Just back from Kerala where the rains had made eveything an emerald green. Took me back to holiday in Kasauli where I found lots of green and not just the leaves.
Sunrise School, which was seen if we leaned out of the balcony in our room, had selective shades of green.

The pine tree and the little bit of green on the church.

Even the people there seemed to prefer wearing the colour.

See, I was not exaggerating.

Striped door and a delightful menu.

Pretty buds, too.

A shut shop in the middle of a bustling street. The locks and the notices add to the drama and lead your imagination.

Seeing green from another window in our hotel.

Some more of the church.

Looking up at a natural kind of green.

The green fence and signs of spring.
Go green :)

Lol, what an interesting post! Yes, lots of green to be found in Kas and the surrounding areas. My school was on the facing Sanawar, and we had lots of window frames and benches painted green!

Wow! they say green is soothing to the mind...nice to have that in school.

We had the regular brown ones except in kindergarten.

Maybe that's why it's my fave color ;-)

Also, did you know that the Simla municipal corporation made it compulsory several years back to paint all sloping roofs either red or green, so there are a lot of reds and greens there too. It's very noticeable in the lower bazaar.

red and green must look fabulous together!
... and that has made me think of christmas!

Thats a church steeple? Looks more like a clock tower.
