Color Your World: 120 Days of Crayola; Orchid

Garden on Savannah Garden Tour

Garden on Savannah Garden Tour

Meduim Violet Red was changed to the color Orchid by Crayola in the 1958 series. I like the name and sound of, Orchid, better than the original color name. Orchid just sounds so dainty!

My photo for Orchid was taken in a garden in Savannah, Georgia. I was there for a visit and as my luck goes the garden club was offering a garden tour of some of their fantastic homes and gardens. It ended with a tea, presented in one of the gardens. Talk about southern charm!  If you would like to learn more about the garden and walking tours held in Savannah at the end of March look Here! Trust me these are events worth seeing!

It is hard to believe I have posted on 60 of the designated colors of the 120 color pack of Crayola crayons! I have had so much fun with this challenge and there are 60 more colors to go! I hope you have enjoyed it as much as I have! I have learned some very interesting facts about Crayola too!

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

Living with Nature

"Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts. There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains of nature -- the assurance that dawn comes after night, and spring after winter.” ― Rachel Carson, Silent Spring


Sense of place, purpose, rejuvenation and joy
