Spring fields near Petworth West Sussex

Seedlings and fields near Petworth, Sussex

Red and green should never be seen rhyme

I took this photo of some fields near Petworth which reminded me of the old phrase ‘red and green should never be seen rhyme’. Turns out the phrase has many origins; possibly British fashion advice, possibly relating back to Irish queens who were the only ladies who should be seen in red and green – and my personal favourite, advice on the colours of ship’s lights which are green on one side and red on the other. If a sailor could see ‘red and green together’ on another ship then they are on a collision course.

These lovely spring fields are on the Petworth Midhurst road near Tillington. The green shoots of spring!

Shot on my lovely Nikon d7100 on a 16-85mm Nikkor lens, ƒ/5.6, 1/125 sec, ISO 200. See the photo on Flickr and 500px. Thanks for looking!
