Project Green: Some more greens

Very green irrigated fields around Salavan - just starting to turn yellow. Already people are starting to harvest dry season rice in some places, just before the start of the rainy season. As you can see by the picture below, the dry season look - of bleached out browns and grays - still haven't given up easily to the rains. The fields above are surrounded by dust and packed gray dirt.

Look up close at the top of the trees and there are round green-purple globes. Open them up and there's a translucent fruit - which doesn't taste that great by itself but is often mixed with noodles, corn, beans, etc., mixed with ice and covered with sweetened coconut milk.

And finally, a green bus - traveling between Vientiane and Udomxai.

This is my third contribution to Project Green, where everyone posts pictures of their interpretations of the color green.

Exiting for a woman from Norway to see pictures like this :-)

Nice weekend to you.

I guess your Project Green is also SWF ... not that it matters, because the photos are just great.
Perfect colours and light.
