The Bittersweet color was added to the Crayola line-up in 1958. I was surprised to learn that the name was not used in the English language as a color until 1892.

We used to scour the hedgerows in the fall looking for bittersweet to make a lovely fall wreath. It brings back wonderful memories of Autumn in the Midwest! I love this color!

This post is just one of many in the Color Your World: 120 Days of Crayola Challenge! Enjoy!
