Today am not going to write much – instead I am going to let the pictures do the talking.
Some of my peonies. I love them and so do the ants.
I love the way the purple of the Iris contrasts with the orange of the Poppies. I would never think to pair these 2 colors together but nature does it and it works beautifully.
My Dogwood Tree is beginning to bloom – when this is in full bloom it is absolutely amazing!
Some of the pretty colors from my potted plants:
I hope you enjoyed this little tour of some of my flowers –
When I am struggling with color choices for a quilt, I will look at the wonderful pictures of Spring and Summer. I usually can find the answer in the garden. If I would see the colors together in nature then they are OK together in a quilt. So when you are undecided walk outside – if you see it in the garden go for it you may be really pleasantly surprised.
Rain is coming tonight – we have had way more than our share of rain this Spring. I just hope that the weather patterns change soon or we will be having a cool, damp summer. Not good for the gardens or the local seasonal businesses.
