This post inspired by V.J.’s Weekly Challenge #51: Green
This was the view outside my home a few days ago.
The color green is everywhere.
Spring time explains it…before the heat of summer dries the grass to a crispy brown.
There is something comforting about blue + yellow.
I chose green as the color for my first bedroom-of-my-own when I was 11 years old. Emerald green carpet. Green diamond patterned wallpaper (which I loved, even though it aggravated the paper hanger). The only green in the house. A marked contrast to my sisters’ purple and pink florals.
The woods I explored. The leafy tree I climbed. The grass I sprawled out on. Looking up…studying cloud formations.
When I was seven…my favorite dress.
