Ever since I was old enough to ride a bicycle and join my best friend for a weekly adventure, I’ve been visiting the Smith College Botanic Garden.
Allison and I loved the steamy, earthy smelling Palm Room, and would marvel at the bananas, ‘way up there.’ Then, it was a mad dash down another tightly packed corridor to run our fingers along the sensitive plants.
“I got the last one!” Alison would triumphantly call out as the final feathery frond vanished before our very eyes.
A Passion for Color
Even though botanic gardens have always been a favorite destination point, they’ve never stirred an interest in gardening. Instead, color is my passion.
Luckily, my life’s path has lead me back to the Smith College Botanic Garden where I continue to explore how the master(s) use yellow, such as in the orchid room.
Yellow as an accent color
Sometimes too much yellow can be overwhelming. Many times just a hind of yellow can be the perfect solution.
What do you like best?
Do you like yellow as a main color, or as an accent? I’d love to hear what you prefer, as well as what color you like best?
