50 Shades of Green
There is green(1), aquamarine(2), and chartreuse(3) for starters.
Then there are greens that are described by putting the name of a plant or other item from nature in front of them like lime green(4), pea green(5), forest green(6), grass green(7), apple green(8), seafoam green(9), emerald green(10) olive green(11) and moss green(12).
There are other shades of green that are made when green is combined with other colors like blue green(13), yellow green(14), and gray green(15).
Then, of course there is light green(16), medium green(17), dark green(18), very dark green(19), medium dark green(20), and medium light green(21).
If you have a fashion sense, you might think of shades of green like neon green(22), metallic green(23), and mossy green(24), which isn't quite the same as moss green, now, is it?
The list continues with words that don't even include the word green in them like jade(25), verdigris(26), vert(27), viridian(28), and spruce(29).
For those who can't decide on a favorite shade of green, they might like bluish green(30), yellowish green(31) or grayish green(32).
Or how could we forget very light green(33), light seaform green(34), light pea green(35), light moss green(36) and light spruce green(37).
Some people can't get enough green so they go off to the dark side with colors like puke green(38) and snot green(39). Gross. Let's get those images out of our mind by thinking of spring green(40), leaf green(41), and John Deere green(42).
Too much green? Never! How about pale green(43), pistachio green(44), pastel green(45)? Or light pale green(46)?
Or some more shades of green names that stand alone without green, like moss(47), olive(48), and emerald(49).
Finally, the 50th shade of green? Look to your garden and you'll find it. A unique color that is the shade of your garden, let's just call it "your green"(50).
