Lovers’ Lane, Evening Sky and Green (Weekly photo challenge) and a P.S.

17 Nov

1   Just down the road from us is a path we can take to town, called Lovers’ Lane. That name pleases me.

Lovers’ Lane

2 A beautiful sky tonight.

Evening sky

3   There are so many beautiful shades of green and so many beautiful names for those colours – jade, turquoise, chartreuse, emerald, aquamarine, beryl, pea, olive, malachite, moss, and lime….

P.S. I don’t comment on news, politics or religion in this blog (and those who know me know that in real life I do that all the time!) but tonight I just want to say how my heart goes out to all those Egyptian families who have lost a child or maybe more than one in that terrible coach/train accident. I don’t have many readers of my blog in Egypt but I want to send love from one parent to another, to send love and strength for coping with this, to just tell you how my heart aches for you all.

    I read the names of the different shades of green. One would think green is green. Language really is needed to convey the exact shade.

    I remember buying crayons for my kids. The twelve count box simply would not do. Must have the 48 count box. There is probably a 96 count by now.

    I enjoy looking at the color charts for web pages and moving the slider oh so little to make a new color. I wonder who makes up all those names.

      I wonder about the name-makers too. The paint chart names sometime bear no resemblance that I can see to the actual colours! 🙂

      Yes, there is! I’ve never seen any lovers down there though but perhaps they are there when we are not!
      I love the Green Giant too. His hair goes orange when the Montbretia flowers! 🙂

    The event in Egypt was shocking. I can’t even begin to imagine how those parents must be feeling.Share your sense of solidarity and compassion.

    The green giant is quite something.

      Thank you for your comments about Egypt and your sharing of my feelings. Losing one of my children has always been an unspoken fear and to think that some parents could have lost more than one child in this, now news-forgotten, accident, is so awful.

      The green giant was made by our artist neighbours and there is a delightful children’s book written about him and his surroundings. 🙂
