Celadon, chartreuse and jade,
Viridian, khaki and mint,
Olivine, willow and lime,
Avocado, turquoise and pine,
Emerald, clover and teal,
Asparagus, myrtle and moss,
Bottle green, olive and shamrock -
There’s never been a simple green;
Such tones and shades are nature’s paean,
Colours that soothe whenever seen,
In forest, field or verdant dene. 


  1. So many tones and shades on your palette. Beautiful!

    Tossing It Out

  2. WoW! A veritable paint box of delicious colours. And it's only taken all day for Blogger to let me post a comment!!! lol ♥

  3. Brilliant! I love colour names and green is one to produce loads. Doesn't the word chartreuse just roll off the tongue so well?

  4. What a veritable feast of greens! :-)

  5. green happens to be my favorite color so naturally I was drawn to this!

  6. There are so many greens, one of my favorite colors.

  7. Hundreds of years ago when I was in college, I tried to write a poem about "the many hues of nature's so-called green". Never did finish it. I like this.

  8. Oooh, that is really pretty. Mummy says she really like it a lot :)xx

  9. Excellent use and handling of the list - not always the easiest of tasks. Fine response to Jinksy's intriguing image.

  10. Green is very complex. Excellent response to the image!

  11. Have been feeling a little green around the gills... but must say I am green with envy of your many subtle tone differences found here. Smiles... Good one!
