On any given day if you asked me what my favorite color was I would reply, "green!" without a moments hesitation. I just love all shades of green. I love looking at it outside in nature, inside the walls of my home, and on my own self. My love of green began with seeing the hue reflected in my own eyes. I thought I was so special to have beautiful green eyes. . .then my brother came along.
Padraic has something no one else I know has. Golden colored Eyes. They aren't brown, or hazel, or some other combination. They are the most unique shade of honey-gold I've ever seen. For whatever reason I have lately become in love with mustardy/saffron/honey/golden yellow tones. Perhaps it's a long rooted jealousness with the fact that my little brother was born with more beautiful and uniquely colored eyes than myself. Perhaps it's the trees giving up the gorgeous green leaves for gold and red signs of the colder weather to come.
Either way, my flickr favorites is all about my second favorite color:
And now you'll have to excuse me because I am off to knit that Bainbridge Remix scarf. :)
