Well done wim. Far too young to remember these songs. Could paint the windows green to match.

Congratulations Colin! Really enjoying seeing everyone's green images. These are my three:

Here are my 3 entries :

 

Being objective 😉, undoubtedly the most beautiful shade of green… Chartreuse green…

Remember Tarantino's words about Green Chartreuse: "the only liquor so good they named a color after it"

green-chartreuse-on-the-rocks-J196C5.jpg

 

When it comes to vegetation, I cannot remember any place on earth being "greener" than Reunion island.

And even if "it is not easy being green", it does not prevent from becoming the most iconic Jedi master in history.

Even though the subject matter isn't green I've always liked the green on this image so i'll include it.
