The color Melon has been in the Crayola lineup since 1958. It is also known as Sweet Georgia Peach and represents Georgia in the “State Color Collection.”
Isn’t it a cheerful color? I think it says a lot about the owner. They are upbeat, lively, and not afraid of what the world thinks.
My photo was taken in Bloomington, Indiana, home of Indiana University. This is a small neighborhood of pastel, craftsman type houses that is a joy to walk in, due to their quirky colors, artistically decorated yards, and large flower and/or vegetable gardens. In my mind the Bloomington neighborhood would have fit right in with the Bloomsbury Group, a gifted group of men and women, who set out to change the world with their contemporary thinking and love of art. For more on the Bloomsburys’ see my previous post HERE. Just another day in a beautiful neighborhood!
