Dusty Miller at the Lincoln Park Conservatory

Even though there still is no snow outside here in Chicago, the color for this month is going to be white, perhaps because at this point I am really craving white! Snow, snow, snow!

Each month on this blog we work on one color, so far we’ve done, graybrown, orange, red, green, pink, blue, and yellow.

Here’s my little start for white, and I am curious to see what you will contribute:
