it is a fruit that ripens to a yellowish-greenish color.
I purchased a dress from
When I brought it home, my sister said,
"Oh, that's funny, it looked yellow online"
but to the naked eye its a pale lime green
And then I wore it to a bridal shower and the bride said,
"Oh, look at your fun yellow dress"
But its green! I wanted to correct her
then I stumbled upon a page in this month's issue of House Beautiful (cuz one day I want my house to be beautiful!)
and there it was on page 56... Quince... described as "Not quite lemon, not quite lime - its a happy family of hues between yellow and green that can't help but uplift you"
Whaddya think of that!?
