Green, it's my favourite colour
Yet, the world sees it in such a different light to me.
Green is the colour of the vegetables that we have to trick our children into eating
Green is the colour of sickness, disease, radioactive waste
To me though, green is the colour of new beginnings.
The colour Noah looked out for when the dove flew back to him
The colour seen after the storm passes over the fire and the plants start to grow again
The colour seen at the intersection, telling me it is safe to move forward
The colour Stephen's eyes sometimes turn depending on the day
The colour of nature, of life
The colour I imagine God first creating in his mind when he pictured the world he would design.
Green can mean so much to so many. To me it is beautiful and it is where I belong, in and amongst nature.
This month, I picked up some Monstera Leaves at the markets. I've eyed them out before and my friend highly recommended them to me but in a market full of flowers, why would you just buy the green? I took the $8 leap and bought a bunch of the beauties seen above and I knew instantly I wouldn't regret it. They add something to a home that a flower doesn't. I don't know what it is or how to describe it but it just makes more sense to me to fill a home with green.
Do you agree? What's your favourite colour?
