Green

Green is of course the colour made by combining blue and yellow pigments. A green is an area of grass, often used for sports or recreation (putting green, village green). Greens are vegetables of any colour (eat your greens if you want to stay healthy).






Green can be used negatively to mean unripe or unseasoned (green apples are sour and green wood is unsuitable for most carpentry) naive or envious.







More positively being green is to attempt to care for our environment in numerous ways including adopting sustainable practises, limiting waste, planting trees, collecting litter and avoiding plastics,.

The University of Southampton are running a variety of free to enter writing competitions with the theme of sustainable societies. They're looking for novels, film, stage and radio plays, interactive fiction and a TV series.



I'll be green with envy if you wn this playwriting competition from Papatango – the prize is £6,000! UK and Irish residents only. There's an option to get feedback on your work, which I'm sure would be very useful.

Are you green in any way?

Hi Patsy ... the greening of the land is so lovely to see. I do my bit for being green ... and I'd be green with envy for whomever won the prize - but as I don't think I'll be entering ... I can only wish everyone luck! Cheers Hilary

I do love when everything looks green, though I also love the snow and frost! Will check out those links as they sound so intriguing, thanks.

That's a great prize - shame I'm not a playwright!
My eyes are grey/green - does that count? :)

I do my best to be green. I also have a small green man hanging in my hallway, except he's not yet green so I might have to paint him.
