Verdigris

ver·di·gris [vur-di-grees, -gris] noun: a green or bluish patina formed on copper, brass, or bronze surfaces exposed to the atmosphere for long periods of time, consisting principally of basic copper sulfate. (from Dictionary.com)

I took my mom to Blenheim Palace today, and as we wandered around the grounds of one of England’s prized treasure houses, I noticed the green patina gracing many of the metallic surfaces. That got me digging through the rest of my photos from our travels throughout the UK in the past eighteen months, looking for more verdigris.
