An appropriate question. I think the Green Lady looks much more interesting. 🙂
You are so nice, Otto 🙂
That has to be you, Tish!
So did the Green Woman fight the Ice King?
She had a good go – especially when it came to defending her brassicas 🙂
Very true! And she was rewarded.
Gave me a chuckle. 🙂 🙂 Taking no prisoners, Tish?
Not me! 🙂
Would that be the “Green” reaper?
The pun was too easy. I couldn’t resist.
Hope all is well with you, Memsahib?
I am well, Brian. Hope all well in your neck of the woods 🙂
Hopping along as Frogs do. 🙂
And to you, monsieur.
Lovely picture. 😀
So the Green Man was the sacrificial blood and spirit offering to ensure the coming year would be a fruitful one, therefore the Green Woman would just have to scatter a little menstrual blood to achieve the same result. 😀
Thank you for that important insight. We’ve got things taped then. So little fuss 🙂
Gender parity. Sigh. Perhaps one day we’ll have jobs given to the person who does the best job, regardless of everything else. But I do love your take on the photo. 🙂
Thank you, Janet. I do so agree with you.
Ahh yes, there’s the Goddess!
Green Lady is much more enigmatic. She has my vote. 🙂
Thank you, Julie. I think she may have some mileage…
Definitely time for some gender parity. Love the sighting of the stylish green woman 🙂
Thank you for your support, Helen 🙂 🙂
