Imagine living in a kaleidoscope of colors: rich violet or midnight blues, sunny yellows, calming lavender and heart-stopping pinks. The shades slowly appear and change around you, set against a background of soothing, lush greens. Color? Love it…and you can grow that!
You might be picky about which colors you wear, paint on your walls, or plant in your garden, but you must admit that the shades you love make you feel better. Even colors that you’re not particularly fond of affect your mood and behavior. It’s no wonder that so many fast food restaurants have orange furnishings, for example…it’s said that this color stimulates the appetite.
Whether you love yellow and hate pink, or crave purple but shun red, you can have an ever-changing show of your favorite hues on your kitchen counter or outside your front door.
Think flowers and bright foliage. Think blooming houseplants, shrubs, perennials and annuals. Think of the joy that you’ll feel being surrounded by these colors when you leave the house in the morning and come home from work later in the day. Consider planting soothing colors on the deck or patio where you sit with your tea or coffee. Place bright colors where they will catch the first and last rays of sunshine.
Depending on where you live, spring is either arriving or just around the corner. Your landscape is about to be the setting for a joyous, seasonal party. Now is the time to plan how you’ll decorate for the festival.
Love color? You can grow that! Plant something.
