Blue and Green

by oneobserving



Once upon a time, blue and green together could not be seen.

I remember, as a child, being forewarned that this colour combination was a fashion faux pas. But I was always perplexed. I would see the blue sky and green trees side by side. Looked perfectly fine to me. Why couldn’t these two colours be worn together?

Of course, this fashion crime no longer applies. Yet, to this day, whenever I see green leaves against the blue sky, I find myself saying, as though still defending the wrongly accused: “Blue and green together are quite splendid.”
