Each year I usually touch on what is purported to be the “Color of the Year” as seen by Pantone. And this year that color is violet. I have to admit, purple of any shade is not something I’ve decorated with since I had a room that color when I was ten!
I love Spring! Everything about it is so cheerful and full of promise. One of the things that I look forward to the most is planting fresh flowers in the garden, and one of my absolute favorites is lavender. Though I am usually a “white flowers only” girl, for some reason, the soft purple color and of course, that fragrance, really speak to me in the Spring. Also, it is drought tolerant so it grows really well here, even in the heat of summer. But I love it inside as well; it’s adorable in pots around the house (it looks especially good in galvanized buckets) and looks amazing on a kitchen counter!
