Garden color

I operate on the theory that a girl can NEVER have too much color in her wardrobe or her garden.......

IMG_0749Pots are perfect for adding color, too..........IMG_0754Or, it can be just a single beauty........ 

IMG_0755  at the end of the day, leaves alone can add wonderful color......

IMG_0757 Thanks for touring my colorful garden today! 

I'm joining the party at Jean's Bloomin Tuesday and An Oregon Cottage Garden and another happy place I haven't been in a while Rednesday.

I totally agree with you. I'm planting more flowers and seeds than I ever have before...I love to walk and turn and see flowers wherever I look. I love how you have little peekaboo flowers and bushes here and there. Just gorgeous. I like how you have a plan and not just a generic look! Great post.
Blessings,
Debbie

though i want one i don't seem to want to do the work it requires!!

I love color and think all colors in nature look good together. Your little nook would be a great place to read a book, if you could take your eyes off all the beautiful blooms! Jean

And your theory COMPLETELY holds water. What a nice retreat you have made for yourself and your loved ones.

I have plenty of color in my yard, but none in my cloths. I should wear colors more. I have always been an earth tone person.

I'm kinda new to flower gardening this year, really loving it as I learn so much from bloggers like you. Thanks for sharing your beautiful flowers. I "followed" your blog while visiting from Rednesday.

...especially if that garden color is RED!

COLOR DILEMMA

Yellow or red—which shall it be?
Red for you and yellow for me?

Perhaps you’d rather have yellow instead—
Which leaves me, of course, with handfuls of red!

Whichever hue you decide to choose,
I’ll take the other—no one will lose!

How pretty...and so much wonderful color! Today, I bought some red Yarrow, you mentioned it in your comment on my post and that made me interested. It is the 'fern leaf' variety and I haven't grown it for a while...we shall see how it does? Have a great day and thank you for you for visiting me.
