Shades Of Green

Green, green, my pool is green. We lost our pool guy a few months ago and being not too handy at pool maintenance ourselves our pool has gradually turned a deeper shade of green. I checked out the 38 shades of green listed on wikipedia to determine a match and it was a bit overwhelming. I like some of names of the colors like asparagus. Cal Poly Pomona green,ย  and dark moss green might be close.

I had to pick Cal Poly Pomona green because I live in California for gosh sakes. There’s even a Slytherin green, cool! Just added 2 packages of Shock this morning and did some quick research on pool care. I think we need to hire someone to take care of the pool again. It might cost us some money but I am yielding due to our lack pool cleaning capability.


Green Lacewing

Haven’t seen any of these lacewings lately. I will have to monitor my pyracantha when it starts to bloom again.

        I asked Sassy, and she also sees six. The Mister initially saw eight, then tilted the monitor a bit and saw nine. Color blindness is very interesting to me.

        Oh no, I got that. There are nine, but not everyone can see them. I recently discovered my #3 kid has limited color vision and I find it intriguing.

        Oh. I thought you and Dan were talking about all the colors. I did not realize that about not seeing all the color squares. My vision in one eye is decreased because of an inflammation I had in the past. The colors are definitely not as bright through that eye. I have heard of color blindness but did not associate it with my color chart. Sorry if I was insensitive.

        I don’t think the squares represent all the colors of green. But the colors will change if you add more white or black to them. I would need to take up a lot of my blog to give examples of all 38. ๐Ÿ˜€

    Beautiful. I’m quite partial to green, especially moss. And lacewings remind me of fairies so I hope they don’t bother your pyracantha. Glad you are hiring someone for the pool, that’s a lot of work.

      I did not realize there were so many greens. I do love colors and the all the creative names given to them. The lacewings can eat other pests, so that is good. I am realizing it is a lot of work to maintain the pool and we will need help. Thank you, Jo Anna. ๐Ÿ™‚
