I’ve mentioned before how I seem to subconsciously go through phases with colours and I’ve noticed that these phases seem to be very much influenced by the seasons and the weather. In summer I go for anything bright, in autumn I choose golds, reds and russets, in winter I love deep berry colours and in spring…. well, it just has to be green…..
At the moment, I’m spinning this…
and starting this……
I love the colour green. It speaks to me of new growth, fertility and freshness. In fact, the word green is believed to derive from an Old English word meaning to grow. Of course there are plenty of negative associations too – if you’re jealous you might be “green with envy” or if you’re unwell you might be looking “green around the gills”. However, these associations are not the ones that spring immediately to mind for me. Instead, the colour green always conjures up images from nature, images such as these…..
So how about you… What things do you associate with green? Do you love it or loathe it? Whatever you think about it, I hope you’ve enjoyed this particular little burst of greenness!
