Great, the traffic lights are green and I can drive straight ahead! The view from my lounge is of green trees and grass. A friend of mine has paid to have “lazy lawns” installed in her garden. The firm first made sure that the artificial grass was exactly the same green as the real grass that they removed.
Because green is my favourite colour, I have many clothes that colour. Perhaps it is a reaction to my youth when no-one in my maternal family wore green. They considered it very unlucky! At the age of sixteen I rebelled and bought a green bathing costume. An Aunt died soon afterwards which made life difficult for me.
I’ve heard since that many people years ago thought that green should be avoided clothes wise. It never changed my mind! Luckily when our daughter went to Exeter University the students wore green and white scarves.
I don’t like to eat fruit, but my husband enjoyed it. When I cooked mackerel I used to make a gooseberry sauce for him. The green enhanced the silvery fish. I thought that this dish was my idea. Not at all! When we moved to France we discovered that gooseberries are called “groseille à maquereau”. We were surprised, but perhaps you knew that!
Have you noticed that many waiting rooms are painted green because it is a soothing colour. Yes, I love green!
