Color Our World~White

Yum
White.  Pure as the driven snow.  A sign of purity.  It is also one of the most common colors in nature, did you know that?



The bloggers from Project Beautiful chose White as their January color.  White is an achromatic color, a color without hue. White is a color closely associated with all world religions.  White was most likely the first color used in prehistoric times, as chalk was available and didn't have to be mixed.  

White is beautiful and found in so many forms.  Let's take a look at what each of our bloggers did this month.

Lynne at Sensible Gardening discusses white gardening.  She says white flowers are her favorites and she gives us some examples to highlight her point.  They are gorgeous!


Karen from GardeningChick shares the white flower called Obedient Flower with us.  She says it gets its name from, well, go and read the post to find out!

Renee from The Gardening Frog tells us about the Formosa Lily.  She says it has an incredible fragrance and is from Formosa, Taiwan.  My dad served over there for awhile.  Another story! 

Shoshi at Blooming Secrets tells us about a year of color using white flowers.  I am in love with the white astilbe. That flower is so delicate and long lasting.  So pretty.


Teri at The Freshman Cook takes us a new direction with this delicious Chicken Marinara Panini.  The creamy texture of the chicken and cheese make me so hungry.  Better head on over and see the yummy goodness of this recipe!


These white flowers are popular in the northeast as Lee from A Guide to Northeastern Gardening tells us.  She has a lot of beautiful ideas for white flowers and some garden shots to share in her post.  I am in love with these while allium.

And for me, I made this Warm Vanilla Milk that has been so popular on Facebook.  It is delicious and perfect for something warm but not overly rich.


Thank you for joining us for #PBColorOurWorld White.  Next month we will be featuring PINK and I know our gardener friends will have something wonderful for us!

  2. Good post! I love white and have used lots of it over they years in decorating. I once had a small all-white garden in back of a historical home and loved it-especially on a moonlit night.
    Hope you have a great night- xo Diana

  5. Those are beautiful flowers. I think a lot of the time white flowers get overlooked, well because they are white and not a bold vibrant color. I had white orchids in my wedding bouquet 16 years ago and I loved them!

  8. White is definitely a winter color so good choice. I'd choose a new notebook. Something about those fresh clean white pages... the flowers are very pretty though!

  12. I love white flowers too. I always put a little white into my flowers on my window basket. I think it makes the other colors pop.
