Color Theory: White

I began writing about the colors last year, I talked about Pink and Green, before I was distracted by life. Now that its almost Autumn, Sept. 23rd marks the official change of seasons, and I discussed "Orange" being the color of Fall in my Sept. Newsletter, I'm thinking about my color theory posts once again and decided to pick up where I left off. Today...White.


These plants are from my yard in Texas, except for this Agave which was taken at Enchanted Rock.

Strictly speaking white is not really a color, but a manifestation of the presence of all color, the complete energy of light. It symbolizes wholeness and completion. Brides in many countries wear white, including here in the US, because it also symbolizes purity.

And white daisies symbolize love, remember..."He loves me, he loves me not?"

I can't remember the name of this fuzzy plant! But its supposed to repel deer.

And I also have some beautiful yarns available in white.
