Green – Five Minute Friday #10

Green is the color between blue and yellow on the visible spectrum. It is evoked by light which has a dominant wavelength of roughly 495–570 nm. … By far the largest contributor to green in nature is chlorophyll, the chemical by which plants photosynthesize and convert sunlight into chemical energy. – Wikipedia

Okay, so we have the definition of green, but what is it really?

Green leaves peeking through the snow are a promise of the tulips, daffodils & crocuses to come.

If someone is green-around-the-gills, watch out, because they may lose their lunch at any moment.

What about the green-eyed-monster that is otherwise called jealousy?

Or the deep green of the emeralds in your grandmother’s vintage brooch?

Our family also has a shade of green that we call Aunt-Marty-Green. It is a hideous shade of green, but she loved it.

Who could forget the Dr. Seuss classic, Green Eggs & Ham?

  1. And so many people are trying to “go green” these days…
    This will be the second year in a row that the St. Patrick’s Day parade has been cancelled. It was always such a huge deal in Louisville, attracting about 10,000 people. I hope this is the last time it’s cancelled. March just isn’t the same… Not that much is, these days. 😟
