Is the colour

On a train journey the other day it passed alongside woodland, with the sunshine breaking through the trees it lit up patches of greenery. In the light it looked beautiful, I quite like green as a colour.
What does anyone else think about colour? do you have a favourite? and if so, is there a reason it's your favourite?

Green has also been a favourite of mine. I had a car which was British racing green which I thought was spectacular but I kept getting told it was an “unlucky” colour for a car.
Clothing .. black .. makes me look slimmer :)

I prefer to look at the colour green on lawns, trees, bushes, flowers anything nature. Not keen otherwise. Having said that maybe the odd green here and there in the house. It also depends
on what shade green it is.

I love purples, lilacs, mauves etc. but also various shades of greens, blue/turquoise, brown/beige. Definitely not a red, yellow, orange or pink person, although in minute amounts in a pattern with the predominant colours maybe? Happy to see any wild flowers and love poppies for example but then so much green all around. I also enjoy walking through woodland and seeing the sun glimmering through the trees. No idea why I have a preference for some colours to others though; I just do.

White .. purity :)

White never used to have so many shades as it does today in paints.

Yes, green is a fab colour but I wouldn't stop there. I love the Spring colours, the white of the snow drops, the yellows of gorse, daffs & primroses to name but a few.

Like Sea Urchin I like earth and sea colours and pink as long as its not sickly Barbie pink or magenta, I wear lots of greens, blues, greys and browns with mauves and purples. I do have some deep reds, but they're on the blue end of the red spectrum, almost berry reds rather than the brick reds and orangy ones. Yellow can a nice colour for walls and is good in the garden but not on me.

Certain colours are good for certain things.

Your mindset comes to associate colours with objects, so it can be strange seeing colour you aren't expecting.

If I crack an egg, the there is the 'white', which isn't actually white yet, and the yellowy/orange yolk, but if I cracked that egg, and the 'white' was blue, and the yolk was green, it would freak me out.

I like the colour red, orange, yellow in all it`s shades and combinations. Just thinking of a blood orange makes my mouth water!
Navy blue looks safe, smart and business like , but is a bit boring and imagine eating some navy blue cheese or fish... yuk!
I like the colour green in nature, but for clothes it has to be a very muted soft green in combination with greys and soft browns.

I should think it would TW, it would be a signal that there was something very wrong with your egg and that it might not be safe to eat.

The 'widow woman' has recently bought a green coat, been looking for one for ages apparently, she thinks it's wonderful! To me it's a three quarter length anorak!! (The coach holiday brigade type) lol.
Coupled with her black trousers, she looks like a bush walking down the street!!!

A few years ago, perhaps decades, I spent quite a bit of money on a canary yellow lady suit- pencil skirt and a short fitted jacket. I thought I would impress the other guests at the wedding and I was VERY pleased with my choice of outfit until...
my brother started humming that song about a yellow bird , high up in a banana tree...

My school uniform was bottle green. Skirt, jumper, socks, coat, even knickers. I hate bottle green. Working for the ministry most office buildings were painted in a combination of puke yellow and bilious "leaf" green.

The fresh green of newly opening leaves is much nicer but sadly doesn't last as they collect dust and other pollution..

I like yellow. And shades of yellow. I find it grabs the attention to look at it. Like maybe the perfect yellow of a single buttercup, or daffodil. Have some beautiful yellow roses in the garden. Not in bloom yet.

I also ike the different shades of green in the country. The fields and hedgerows etc.

Green's the colour of the sparklin' corn
In the mornin', when we rise ...

I wouldn’t go as far as wearing green clothes , but it is a good colour for the countryside, this green and pleasant land.
