Green is an important color in nature. It is the color of grass and the leaves on trees. It is also the color of most growing plants.
Sometimes, the word green means young, fresh and growing. Sometimes, it describes something that is not yet ripe (成熟) or finished. For example, a greenhorn is someone who has no experience, who is new to a situation. In the fifteenth century, a greenhorn was a young cow or ox whose horns (角) had not yet developed. A century later, a greenhorn was a soldier who had not yet had any experience in battle. By the eighteenth century, a greenhorn had the meaning it has today—a person who is new in a job.
Someone who has the ability to grow plants well is said to have a green thumb. The expression comes from early 1900s. A person with a green thumb seems to have a magic touch that makes plants grow quickly and well. You might say the woman next door has a green thumb if her garden continues growing long after your plants have died.

Green is also the color used to describe the powerful feeling, jealousy (嫉妒). The green-eyed monster is not a frightening creature (生物) from outer space. It is an expression firstly used about 400 years ago by British writer William Shakespeare in his play "Othello". It describes the unpleasant feeling a person has when someone has something he wants.
