Thirty Word Thursday: Radiant Orchid


purple and white blooming orchid

Pantone decrees

Radiant Orchid

For the New Year.

And everyone obeys.

Wall paint.  Evening gowns.

Advertising.  And jewelry.

I laugh.

I’ve had Radiant Orchid

On my window sill

For years.

  1. LOL! I wish I could keep orchids alive. . .or any plant for that matter.
    Actually, I’ve got some lemon seeds that sprouted (on purpose) that are so pretty in my windowsill. . .and then there’s the potato eyes that also sprouted the other day (NOT purposely done!) in my pantry. 😦

  2. You are so ahead of the times, Miss Linda! I think it is funny to see that color popping up everywhere as soon as they decree it. Oddly enough I find myself unconsciously reaching for it in my own wardrobe and on my beading table! Thank you for joining in the 30 Words challenge! Enjoy the day! Erin

  3. So true! Pantone asks a panel of artists and designers to come up with the “It” color and everyone falls in line. I think knowing the Pantone report is kind of like having a secret decoder ring.

I love comments! Please share your thoughts.
