Word - Green

The word of the week is green.

Its noun meaning - a color between blue and yellow in the spectrum; the color of growing fresh grass or of the emerald; something of a green color; green vegetation; a grassy plot.

Some Thesaurus words are - apple, aquamarine, beryl, chartreuse, fir, forest, grass, jade, kelly, lime, malachite, moss, olive, pea, peacock, pine, sage, sap, sea, spinach, verdigris, vert, veridian, willow.

These are chinese lanterns that will eventually turn a beautiful autumn orange. In the spring when they are just appearing they immerse themselves upon our garden with this luscious hue of illuminated green. I just couldn't describe it in any other fashion, they are just brilliant in coloration. Which shade would you give it? Me, I'm not really sure because I can find all the wonderful ranges of the palette in this photo. It does give you something to ponder though, doesn't it? Mother Nature at her finest, what an artist!
