Colors of Nature

Spring cherry

Still waiting for spring. It is still very cool and rainy here in Alabama.

I have a trio of Yoshino cherry trees in front of my house.

They are at peak, but need a little sunshine to set them off.

A Viburnum is just behind the pictured cherry.


Its lime-colored globes (which will later turn white)

are gorgeous in back of the pastel pink cherry.

The spring colors of nature.

Let’s talk about the color green.
Here are the primary colors on a color wheel–  red, blue and yellow:

The color green is sometimes called the fourth primary color.

This is not true, because primary colors can’t be made by mixing any other colors together.

Green is not a primary color because it is made by mixing blue and yellow.

However, I think this refers to its versatility in décor, as it is the one and only color

that has some shade of it which will go beautifully with every other color.

Janice Lindsay refers to greens as “the chromatic peacekeepers, getting along with any color.”

Green is actually categorized as a secondary for color (as in paint, with the three  primaries being red, blue and yellow),

but a primary for light (speaking in terms of wavelength, with red and blue being

the other two).

When you draw greens from nature’s palette, the way colors are found naturally,

it is hard to go wrong!

Green, it really is the perfect color.
