    The Cool Colors

    2015 - 05.31

    I’ve never been one to embrace the hot colors in the garden,  you know the flamboyant reds and sun drenched yellows. Nope, I‘m usually out in the heat all day and prefer the cooler, more subtle purples, blues, and pinks.  And so, here is a salute to the purples!

They grow stronger and even more beautiful than years past.
