Welcome! For years, my wardrobe consisted of mostly black clothing – skirts, pants, tops, shoes and bags. It worked really well for me because I was a busy working mom who was also attending classes at the local college. All I had to do was grab a colorful scarf, vest, jacket, or necklace and I was out the door. Even my home was decorated in neutrals with perhaps a colorful throw pillow Let’s face it … I am a minimalist. However, over the years, I’ve begun to “warm” up a little. Sitting in the backyard of my little cottage (painted red, by the way) I began to watch the colorful array of birds and flowers, sunsets and sunrises. So I decided to celebrate color with this site. I will focus on one color for the month and post some interesting facts and pictures. Let’s celebrate all the colors that surround us with Facts, Fashion, Food, and Fun! Thanks for joining me on this wonderful adventure in color. Please subscribe for automatic notifications of new posts and share your comments, stories, recipes, and anything else regarding our Color of the Month! I hope you will join me. I can’t wait to start a colorful conversation with you. Have a Colorful Day!
It is blue-butterfly day here in spring,
And with these sky-flakes down in flurry on flurry
There is more unmixed color on the wing
Than flowers will show for days unless they hurry.
But these are flowers that fly and all but sing:
And now from having ridden out desire
They lie closed over in the wind and cling
Where wheels have freshly sliced the April mire.
