One version of a soothing green is from Monet’s garden in Giverny, France. Imagine strolling along this path beside a waterlily pond and being inspired by the green that surrounds you. A peaceful trail leading its way through the green light of Marymere Falls in the Olympic National Park, USA. Such an abundance of trees giving off pure oxygen was a breath of fresh air.Ireland is full of woodlands and fields with so many variations of green it’s hard to pick just one. Here we made it into Glenveagh National Park and basked in its wild green woodlands.Another soothing green is this mint tea for a shivery spring day in Amsterdam.
Green, as it tends towards the yellow, is the colour of spring and revitalization, like this willow tree in the spring light.But green is also associated with poison and bile. Greed and envy can burn acid green into your soul, poisoning all around you. Poison green often tends towards yellow and brown.This pit viper in Thailand screams green poisonous beauty.Nephrite jade’s name comes from the Latin ‘lapis nephriticus’ which translates as ‘kidney stone’ and the word ‘jade’ itself comes from the Spanish term ‘piedra de ijada’ or ‘loin stone’.
