True Colors Thursday - LIME

This week the TRUE COLOR is Lime Green - Lime green is a color between yellow and green, so named because it is a representation of the color of the citrus fruit called limes. It is the color that is half way between the web color chartreuse and yellow on the color wheel.

Lime green is approximately the most visible color on the spectrum because it is corresponds to a wavelength near the peak of the photopic luminosity function.
Lime Jell-O is the official state food of Utah and Utah is a state in the "Jell-O Belt", a term synonymous with the Mormon Corridor - NO we are not LDS or Mormon - mom is just very fond of Wikipedia!

The vanity in mom and dad's bathroom is "shabby lime"
we don't know why someone would paint a Corvette Lime Green but they did

The Gulf of Mexico the day after Hurricane Katrina

Tree Bark

my chew toy - it's all I'm allowed to have - no rawhide here! I hate this thing!
Dad's laptop case - don't ask!
The little girls' attempt at painting pottery - hey - she was 10 months old! mom did the dragonflys! That's their totem! She and Livy have dragonflys everywhere - you'd think Peek-A-Poo would be their totem!

the dot's and flowers on mom's flip-flops - Man I love those shoes...but she keeps taking them away from me!

some other funky shoes I found in her closet - she said I can have these to chew up - but then daddy said no, it would confuse me!
AND, of course........SHREK

  17. Good choices Checkers. My other comment disappeared- so I better type fast!

  18. Loads of limes, well done, In answer to your question, lime marmalade is not really sour, just a bit tangy, like lime jello, but not good for dogs so best not try it eh!
