‘Orchid Flower’ 2022 Color of the year adds intense thrill to garden

‘Orchid Flower’ is the Color of the Year for 2022 and The Garden Guy is beyond thrilled. I know the color of the year is mainly geared toward fashion and interior decoration but WGSN and their color systems company, Coloro, believe this will cross all segments of life.
