When I was in high school I loved the color green. In the late 1960s "spring" green was very popular. I had a green wool skirt, a green print blouse, a green dress - and I chose bright, spring green carpeting for my bedroom when it was renovated. I even had green contact lenses that gave me bright green eyes.
Its interesting how our tastes change as we get older. I still like green for certain things, but I'm more into sage green type colors. Of course fashions change and sage is a much more fashionable color now than it was in the 1960s so that makes sense. Avacado was popular back in the late '70s and most of the '80s, as is eveident in the avacado green appliances. It was part of the "earth" color palette. I wasn't crazy about it personally though.
As St. Patrick's Day approached this year, someone talked about the green outfit they were going to wear for a dinner that night. I started thinking about what I could wear and honestly, I could not think of a single article of clothing in my wardrobe that was green. There is not spring green, no sage green, no avacado green, no forest green, no kelly green, no green period. I'm not sure why, but apparently green is not my color! I am heavily into reds and pinks and black and grays. Perhaps that's a reflection of the fact that I don't (as far as I know) hvae a single drop of Irish blood in my ancestry.
Well, St. Patrick's Day will come and go without my color input. I suppose there will be enough green without my help!
