Red and yellow and pink and green, purple and orange and blue — I can sing a rainbow, sing a rainbow, sing a rainbow too. ~~ Arthur Hamilton
I don’t know about anyone else, but when the temperature outside is hanging out at over 100 degrees, I am inclined to leave the garden to get along on it’s own for awhile (except for watering, of course) while I stay inside at my computer. So this week I am sorting and categorizing the photos I’ve been taking for the past few weeks – and I have been struck – as I think I am every year – by the sheer profusion of colors to be found in one small garden.
There’s golden yellow:
and a charming peachy-orange:
and a profusion of purple:
The garden doesn’t really need a lot of words from me — it’s enough to just look …
There’s a heavenly blue:
and pink “naked ladies”:
and more purple:
and a small but present dahlia in an eye-piercing yellow:
And that doesn’t even begin to include the dozens of colors represented in the various roses around the place. Next week I’ll be featuring the vast profusion of greens to be found when you look past the vivid colors.
