Did you know that just the sight of a lavender plant or the color is calming?

This year’s Pantone color offers some refuge from the over stimulated world of today. https://www.pantone.com/color-of-the-year-2018

Maybe this is the color I need to revisit as I recharge from working a week-long camp for 300 cub scouts, or just from driving in our thick Dallas-Fort Worth traffic. Either one is enough to make this artist long for a calming lavender bubble bath at the end of the day.

So, with all these soothing thoughts of botanical bliss I find myself marking my calendar to visit our local lavender festival http://www.lavenderridgefarms.com one of these memorial weekends for some calming inspiration.

In the meantime my calming blues are my current craving, and wonder if the use of certain purples might be in my future.
