Title Things Worth Remembering in Color
Description and enjoyed this beauty of bright, iridescent color in her front yard each June. Her birthday was in June as well. GRAY-BROWN pussy willows in the meadow, the first sign of spring each March. Young farm boys found them near the creek and gathered some of the willows to bring to school for the teacher. It always excited those of us waiting for springtime once more. It was the first hint DARK GREEN waxy leaves of the tall poplar trees that came leafing early in spring and made the streets come alive with this new look that lined the streets. The pioneers had this in mind when they planted these trees to beautify their town. It was a sight to behold all through the spring and summer and fall. One could see these trees for miles before one came near the town. They were like green sentinels to welcome the traveler. They were lacy, gray, and elegant in the winter months. GREENISH-WHITE bushes that had boughs laden with white balls of beauty. The whiteness of the blossoms matched the loveliness of the fragrance in the air all around the bushes. BLUE , the color of the sky, and it was the color in variations from deep to pale blue that were always in the paintings of the artist John Stansfield, who captured all the blues of the valley, the sky, the water, and the mountains. His paintings were a lesson in using colors well, and his forever blues in every painting that he created so beautifully. YELLOW roses on the large briar bush by the gate. With petals as soft as the feeling of a silk dress on the skin. The blossoms were small, very much like the wild roses in the field lanes. It is very true; all color is light, which in turn causes different appearances and hues to our eyes, as it reflects upon our senses and gives us joy. 3
