I Am Proud to Be In the Green Eyed Club!

I share this with you too! A lady in England told me many years ago that my eye colour is known as tartan eyes - reason being they appear different in colour depending on what you are wearing. I have done some research on eye colour and ancestral links. Some would suggest they are hazel. Whilst I am a HUGE  lover of trees someone called Hazel gave me an aversion to the name, though it is a nice name. I love cats and my cat who thinks he is my boyfriend has beautiful clear green eyes and we tend to think of cats as green eyed, though I have one with orange and one with blue. So due to the cat link and my love of green as a colour in itself I AM DEFIANTLY  GREEN! IF ANYONE SAYS OTHERWISE I SAY NO THEY ARE GREEN. I LOVE MY EYES TOO. IT IS A RARE COLOUR. If i meet anyone green eyed I think or say Oh you are in the green eyed club.!!!

I guess since I am older than you I have the right to welcome you to the club<br />

Hi i have am told i have brown eyes i think there green , in ireland it is said blue beauty brown eyes proud green eyes greedy .gripey person eyes water and half close when you tell them you've won money or had good luck at something in ireland it is called the water'y gripe . Also the evil eye ,that is why in ireland untill the 70 s you always there fine cows or whatever god bless them our pagen past .

I love the story darling truly is you see blue is gorgeous but overrated I can say that for my eyes are blue depending on which one of us you see green eyes appear a lot in my pictures too.

I too have green eyes that have been "accused" of being hazel. I also say "no they are green". I am the only one in my family with green eyes and I have 3 brothers. The only other one in my family with green eyes was my grandmother's (on mother's side) sister, who was 1 of 9 children. So I believe you are right to say that we are rare.
