It's not easy to be Green

Greetings, Kermit the Frog here
And today I'd like to tell you a little bit about the color green
Do you know what's green
Well I am for one thing You see frogs are green, and I'm a frog
And that means that I'm green, you see

It's not that easy being green
Having to spend each day the color of the leaves
When I think it could be nicer being red, or yellow, or gold
Or something much more colorful like that

It's not easy being green
It seems you blend in with so many other ordinary things
And people tend to pass you over'
Cause you're not standing out
Like flashy sparkles in the water
Or stars in the sky

But green's the color of spring
And green can be cool and friendly-like
And green can be big like a mountain
Or important like a river
Or tall like a tree

When green is all there is to be
It could make you wonder why
But why wonder why wonder
I am green, and it'll do fine
It's beautiful, and I think it's what I want to be

Mellow Yellow

My last two weeks were busy with work, a little mini holiday and then a family health emergency. It made me realize how much we as a society, Need to slow We need to mellow out. That made me think of the song, Mellow yellow. Actually the lyrics are quite silly and don't really make much sense....They call me Mellow Yellow.

Yellow is a colour you see everywhere. Your produce section in the grocery store is full of it. There are many flowers in your garden that glow of this wonderful colour.

It is considered an optimistic colour.
However people lose their temper more in yellow rooms and babies cry more often.
It makes you feel sunny and happy. Like a bride on her wedding day.

Yellow is warm, like the gentle glow of candle light.

It is sunshine. It is inviting.

Yellow ribbons were worn as a sign of hope as women waited from their men to come marching home from war. Today, they are still used to welcome home loved ones.
Its use for hazard signs creates an association between yellow and danger. Cheerful sunny yellow is an attention getter. It is the most difficult color for the eye to take in, so it can be overpowering if overused.
Yellow enhances concentration, It also speeds metabolism.

When I think of Purple I think of royalty, luxury, wealth, and sophistication.

It is also feminine and romantic.

Don't forget that big friendly purple dinasour Barney. And how about that 80's song Purple rain...."I only wanted to see you laughing in the purple rain". favorite.

I did a photoshoot a few weeks back with this little baby girl dressed in this little purple dress,

it was my inspiration for this post....however I didn't realize how rare in nature purple really is.

For this reason purple can appear artificial. However it still is an amazing colour.
