Check it Out: Color my World

Submitted by J. Johnston on Wed, 03/08/2023 - 07:30

I know the official start of spring is not that far away, but I’m ready for it now. Winter, bless her heart, makes for a lovely landscape when all the right ingredients come together for a snowfall. And I greatly appreciate the need for trees and plants to have some well-deserved rest before a new growing season begins. Still, I’m impatient for daffodils, tulips, and sun, sun, sun.

Do the colors of spring make you happy? I’m guessing they do, especially after living with several months of winter’s subdued tones. Since we have a bit more to go before the full glory of spring’s palette comes alive, I thought a color-filled reading list might tide us over until Mother Nature’s 2023 spring show begins. Today’s selections center around several themes: the history of color; how color influences our lives; and color design and creativity.

Winter has its own beauty, but soon we will experience the beauty—and color—of spring. Isn’t nature amazing?
