We are slowly seeing pops of bright, colorful flowers around the neighborhood. Spring is one of our favorite seasons because, along with flowers, we’ve also noticed many more smiles as we pass strangers on the street. Could it be that the springtime flowers are influencing mood? Perhaps! Colors are continuously a topic of research in order to determine how they influence our behaviors.
