Over the weekend, I was reading “the Week” (one of my favorite magazines, by the way) and read that some Chinese researchers have “scientific proof” that women are instinctively drawn to pink, purple and white.
Okay, so I admit it….I am drawn to pinks, purples, whites and reds.
The explanation, according to the scientists, is that our female ancesters were berry gatherers. They needed to be able to see the red berries and leaves in the green foliage. (they also say it helps us find a suitable mate, one with healthy cheeks – let me be clear, Mr. H. does NOT have purple cheeks)
I have other findings that might be of interest to these researchers. I find that many women also like yellow. (after all, the Queen wore yellow at the wedding!) I can’t wear it unless I have a good tan, so maybe that’s why it isn’t as obvious, but in my Garden……
It’s understandable, though. It explains my love for popcorn, hollandaise and shortbread.
Clearly my ancestors were butter-gatherers.
That’s it for today. Just a little observation and pictures of pretty flowers to brighten up your day.
We’ll get back to the butterflies tomorrow.
