One day I asked my Dad what his favourite colour was, and he thought about it for a couple of days then told me it was green. Why? Because it is the colour of the crops coming up!
My garden is green because I have watered it through summer, but the surrounding country is a dirty gold. The crops have browned off and there is dust everywhere, but the rains are due in the next month or two, and within days there will be green there too.
I think my favourite colour is green too … I love how quickly the weeds and crops cover the dirt after teh first rains fall.
