Thoughts on green? Great intellegence, nature, bad spirits, spring, fertility, youth, enviroment, wealth, money, good luck, vigor, generosity, creative intellegence to name a few. The colour of Cancer. Month of August. Kermie & Miss Piggy, "It's not easy being green", The Rainbow Connection. Traffic lights, lettuce, avacado, lime, chlorophyll. Oh I used to drink a chlorophyll drink... it was so good. Aged copper. Oh! Blue cheese! Trees, leaves, Christmas, eyes, Shamrock Shakes (probablly a TM), mint, lemongrass. LEED. My bedroom.
You really can't go wrong with green. It has everything that it's complementary colour has and so much more. It's stronger than it's sister and smells nicer too. Such a nice fiscally responsible budget too.
