What’s going on in my garden these days?Â A whole lot of color.Â 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.Â It’s nice to have an assistant.)
You like red?Â 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. Â 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). Â Check it out!
