ever green

It is no secret that I adore the color green.  Please enjoy a collection of photos from Europe last year.  We stayed in several cities, but it was the country side which captured my heart.  I was impressed by all the green around me.
A water fall in the hills of Alsace Lorraine where we hiked.

A vineyard in Alsace.  Everywhere we looked there was green and I felt so happy.
What color makes you happy?

Green is by far my favorite color too but lately I've been loving the color of the year, marigold. Yummy!

The photos are beautiful! Funny, my post today is about color, as well. Today, in honor of spring exploding all around me, I think my favorite is pink, but I also adore orange, yellow, and green.

I'm not a one color woman. I love shades of purple, however, I adore the jewel tone colors (royal blue, fuschia etc). I could add sky blue and ballet pink. But you get the idea!

Gray, purple and white.
Just looked up the meaning of the colors:
*Gray is a Elegant Neutral, Balanced color.
*Purple is a mysterious color, purple is associated with both nobility and spirituality
*White is purity, cleanliness, and innocence.
The colors we choose in life say a lot about us.

I'm with you. Green makes me very happy. Also the color purple with pinky cast.

Green is definitely one of my all time favorite colors, in all its shades! I love the mint green I associate with the 1930s the most.

Green!

It's my favorite, even my son knows it. Purple a close second. Oddly enough...the same faves as my mom, even though our tastes are at opposite ends of the spectrum.

Lately I've been a green girl as well...something very soothing and yet simultaneously energizing about it.

Green is so peaceful. It's wonderful to see now that spring has arrived. Love your pictures from France/Europe! Looks like it was a wonderful vacation.

Perhaps it is cliché to say, but my favorite color often changes with the season. How can one not revel in the glorious green unfurling itself right now! Divine!

Tara said...

My fave color is white...I know--it's not a color (my kids keep telling me!) I love the pristineness of it!

I love white too - Just bought fresh white towels and sheets and a white mattelasse coverlette.
