The Collector Of Green Things


Friends of Rita , the collector of green things, are puzzled by her furniture and carpets.
Hey Rita, they say, how come your house is a drab sepia brown and you collect green things?
Well, says Rita, it's because the green things stand out against the sepia brown and if everything was green the green things would vanish into the general greenery and you could not see them properly. This way the peas, caterpillars, lizards, alligators, books, tin trumpet and paintings all stand out against the sepia brown and become MORE green!
Oh yes, her friends say, we see what you mean. We like your new green bikini too and the way you are holding those giant peas and looking so pleased with yourself Rita. Yes, it all makes perfect sense.
