September Color of the Month - Apple Green

What does green mean?  Green is typically thought of as the color of nature and healing.  Think how peaceful you feel when you are outside enjoying nature.  Green also symbolizes good luck, renewal, youth, generosity, fertility, jealousy, inexperience, envy, misfortune, and vigor.  People concerned about the environment use the term "going green."
Here are some of the lovely items that I found on Etsy and Pinterest.
