The colour of life

“Green is the prime colour of the world, and that from which its loveliness arises.”
– Pedro Calderon de la Barca

It is said that the favourite colour of the prophet Mohammad was green.  Considering that he lived in a desert country, I can totally relate. How lovely to find green shoots in the sand after a short shower!

However, I wonder if he would approve of the neon coloured trimmings one finds on the outside of many mosques in Saudi Arabia.

The mosque shown here is found in Germany, though, and I admit I tweaked the green tint a bit to make my point.
