Lilacs, Lilacs!

"Go down to Kew in lilac-time, in lilac-time, in lilac-time;
Go down to Kew in lilac-time (it isn't far from London).
And you shall wander hand in hand with love in summer's wonderland;
Go down to Kew in lilac-time (it isn't far from London)."
~Alfred Noyes, The Barrel Organ

If you haven't already noticed, the lilacs are blooming! On Sunday afternoon, as Charlie T. and I walked through the neighborhood, the fragrant smell of these flowers wafted through the air and danced in the breeze. Had my allergies not been fighting me, I'm sure I'd have enjoyed such an olfactory treat even more.

Anyway, seeing and smelling the hundreds of lilac bushes in my little town got me thinking. You see, my favorite color is purple.

So, as I contemplated purple, I started to wonder what it meant. I realized that researching the color's symbolic meaning might reveal aspects of my personality I didn't want to address. However, my curiosity got the best of me, and I quickly found myself typing 'color psychology' into Google.

My results were rather interesting. May I suggest that you take a few minutes and do some research of your own. You might be surprised to find out what your favorite color can reveal about you...

Why did I think your favorite color was pink? Man, I need to be a more observant friend! I'll look up blue. I'm sure it says I am too pessimistic and need to get over it. :) Miss you!

I love purple too. Though I like what it said about people who like black! Thanks for sharing. Also for listening this afternoon. You are a great friend, person, young woman, teacher,co-worker and (I am sure... wife, sister & daughter too)!

Enjoy the sunny weather.
