Mother Natures Autum Color Palette

One of my favorite colors is GREEN.  I particularly like Green Glass.  You may have already guessed it from the Green Glass Header for this month of October.  Aren't the 'Greens' of Fall something spectacular?   Without them, the Reds, Oranges, Yellows, and Browns would blend together, and the reason being Green provides the contrast.  In other words...green makes all those shades of Red ...'POP'.  What about that brown?  It is a mixture of Green and Red.  Mother Nature sure knows her color chart!
I say I am particularly fond of green glass, but I can say the same for green yarn and green fabric.  I realized this as I have been color organizing said yarn and fabric.  It seems my Green Yarn fills twice as many Pop-up Laundry Baskets as any other color.  I won't even go there with the number of shelves, baskets, and tubs of Green Fabric. 
My collection of Green Glass is scattered throughout the house.  This corner in the living room gets light from sunrise to sunset and gives my green glass collection a glow that defies color theory's statement that green is primarily a cool color.

Speaking of cool....our Texas weather is beginning to cool off and the greens of summer are changing to the greens of autumn.  I'm glad! 

It has inspired me to pull out those yarn skeins of autumn greens with names like Fern, Pinon, Spruce, Wintergreen, Malachite and my favorite, Sage.  Wow, how they make those shades of red and orange sing.  Amazing how they can give brown and gold tones a richness also found in Mother Nature.

The Autumn Yarn Poncho's and Shrugs made...and in progress...may change my favorite seasons of Spring and Summer to Fall and Autumn. 

I'm so glad Mother Nature made an Autumn Color Palette!


  1. I live in upstate New York, where I can see fall foliage all around me. For years, that color show has inspired me to take my crochet book back up after a summer without crocheting. I look for oranges, reds and yellows. Never quite thought of green in that way - the contrast that makes the other colors pop but - isn't it wonderful that nature knows best!

  2. I love all your green glass. Makes me think of going to the dime store to buy my mom a candy dish. I have my Mom's amber glass and love putting it out with greens in the fall

  3. excellent pics and yes, after the browns of Texas summer it is nice to have the richness of autumn abound. Just came back from PA and saw a bit of fall color. It wasn't popping yet.
