    Brown? No, Green...

    When they get close to me, some people tell me: oh, you have green eyes... Because from greater distance my eyes look brown, then looking closer people realize that brown color lies deep in a green field... That's the beauty of hazel eyes: you never know exactly what color they...

    I find my eyes rather intriguing.

    There's always a brown tinted green in my eyes, but the color combinations change.

    "hazel" Just Means "our Limited Classification System Needs A Catch-all"

    Yeah, "hazel" seems to mean anything that can't be easily classified. My eyes are multi-colored. There is a ring around the outside of the iris that is sort of darker in color (maybe a greenish brown? I'm not sure), and the inside is a mix of brown, green, yellow, and whatever...

    Cat Eyes

    My sons think that I have really cool eyes because they remind them of the eyes of a cat. A mixture of green, brown and gold.

    Family Thing, I Guess...

    My eyes are the typical brown/green hazel. Have been forever. I say this, because apparently things can change. I prayed from the moment that I met my ex husband that if we ever had children, they would have his deep blue eyes. And somehow, with my family (and his) full of dark...

    And I Love Them

    Some folks think they are blue, some folks say they are green. To me, a person's eyes are the window to their soul. No matter what is going on, someone's eyes are one of the most beautiful parts of the anatomy.

    Hazel.

    I have hazel eyes. It's one of the few things I like about myself. Sometimes they change color due to the lighting of the room. Other times if I wear something bright, like a bluet top, they appear to be a little blue. It's a little funny since none of my parents, nor my...

    My  eyes were blue when I was born.  According to am eyewitness account, my mom. When I was in junior high, they would alternate between hazel, green or gray, depending on the clothing and lighting in the room. Being a man ( or a boy at the time ) how do I know this?  Because...

    Brown And Green

    They look light brown from a distance but if you really look in them you can see the green highlights. I love my eyes. They’re the window to my soul. If anyone cares enough to read in them.

    Eyes: the Windows to Your Soul

    They say eyes are really the windows to one's soul. As corny as that may sound, I believe it. My eyes are hazel, they're a mixture of brown and green. I believe that people with different colors or mixes to their eyes are more complex. Like there's more of a puzzle to them. And I...

    Unsure

    Unsure whether I have green eyes or hazel eyes. Genetically, there's a 0% chance I was supposed to have either. Sometimes I say green and sometimes I say hazel because sometimes the brown in the center is there and sometimes they are a grey green. It's weird.

    I'm not exactly sure what color my eyes are.

    One thing I like about my eyes is that they often change colors. Usually they are hazel-ish, but sometimes they are like a dark green (friends say to me that they never noticed I have green eyes) and other times they are a gold/honey color (a friend said I have tiger eyes lol...

    Genetic Throwback?

    My eyes are hazel green. They're dark so often people think they're brown.  Rimmed with gray and with flecks of yellow, no one else that I've met in my extended family has eyes this color. No one in my birth family or my child has the same color eyes either.  Colors range from...

    Who Has Hazel Eyes?

    I have hazel eyes, if that means I can have different colors at different times.  Sometimes it's what clothes I wear, and sometimes it's my mood.  Just don't make me angry...they turn red and shoot fire.
