Green Tree Trunks

We've had some rain here lately, and its the kind of rain that thoroughly soaks everything. Now, I've lived near poplars my entire life and I don't ever remember noticing this.  Just look at those trunks! They are the brightest shade of green. As they dried, they turned back to their regular white. I pointed this out to my husband, and he had never noticed this either.  Now every time it rains, I will be checking to see if the trunks are green.
 
I did nothing to these photos.  They are just straight shots, no special filters or enhancements.  Actually, I think the green was a little brighter than this when looking at it, but here you go.

  1. Hi Andrea - I'd check out whether they are diseased .. though I don't like to bring that news via a comment - but it might be sensible - and worth doing - so other plants aren't infected. Cheers Hilary

  2. I see the green. I do hope the trees are not diseased. You'll have to keep us posted.
    We are having a very rainy day today. I hope you have a nice afternoon and new week.

  3. Mature orchid roots do that same thing. When you water them they turn bright green. As they dry they go back to the usual silvery white color.

  9. I've never seen poplars turn green from rain but cells that are waterlogged may react differently. Rather unique experience.
