V is for Virescent: A to Z Challenge 2014

Earth Spiral Mandala by Margaret Almon

Virescent is like a mixture of two of my favorite words, iridescent and verdant.  Virescent describes becoming green, a word of spring. The way yellow turns into green is one of my favorite transitions when I am making mosaics.

    Not familiar with the word, but very cool to now know it. I love bright and pretty, and your mosaic is gorgeous. Recently went to Barcelona and was wowed by the Mosaics there. Here for A-Z
