Color splash

What’s going on in my garden these days?  A whole lot of color.  So much color, in fact, that I grabbed my camera and went out to capture it on film (followed, of course, by a small boy toting our old camera, which he has claimed as his own.  It’s nice to have an assistant.)

You like red?  We’ve got red.

We have pink, too — many different shades.

My yellow roses are just about to start a new cycle of bloom …

I just love the various blue tones of the lobelia.

And my snapdragons are shades of sunset … gorgeous, especially in the light.

Really, this is why I garden.  It’s hard to look at so much vivid color and not feel a little bit happier, isn’t it?

P.S. I’m guest-posting today at dotMagis — blogging about how St. Ignatius’ prayer the Examen is the perfect prayer for anyone with a crazy-busy life (that would include all moms).  Check it out!
