OK, so Pantone has named Mimosa the 2009 color of the year (I have mentioned it here and here), but Mimosa doesn’t grow here. Dandelions do, though.
So perhaps my color of the year will be “dandelion.” And that is happy, too, even though sometimes they have made me crazy. If it weren’t for the HOA, wouldn’t we let them have their way?
