52 Pick-me-up: Sage / Wisdom

••• 
Sage Green, this week's color prompt, has Wisdom built into its name's meaning.
Do with that what you will.
Was my combo a wise choice?
It was colorful, in a muted sort of way.
I'll be joining Patti's Visible Monday when her party gets going. 
This is our last week of green-themed prompts, by the way. Next week we'll start seven weeks of Blues.

Kelly Green is this week's official color prompt. If you ask me, it is almost the same color as Grass Green (two weeks agoor Emerald (three weeks ago). Let's go off script.

I managed to find some Neon Slime Lime socks in my collection. Behold!

Ready for your dark room? 
I guess I'll go sear some eyeballs on Patti's Visible Monday. Bwahahahaha!
