Magic is happening. Winding roadsides are illuminated in shades of ROY G (without the BIV). Suddenly there is discernable depth to the woods, each young understory tree recognizable, individual, water-colored in pigments from nature’s brightest palette. Sherwin Williams could come up with a whole new paint line based on the sourwood alone. Deep maroon, blazing red, salmon pink, and every shade in between, as deep into the woods as the eye can see, adorning that crooked little tree in ‘Shades of Sourwood.’. And the yellows! From the muscadines that wind through other branches to the tall, ramrod straight tulip poplars, spilling over to sweet birch, beech, ash and maples, clear yellows and rich golds shine. Get yourself outside and bear witness to this beauty.~K
