Mid-day yesterday I finally got outside to see what I had been admiring all morning from my office window. Not the best time of day to photograph, but today it’s about what I can share. And I can share my delight in the red tulips that capture my attention with their vivid cheerfulness. Coupled with the magical blue of the Virginia Bluebells, the strong bright color acts as a beacon so I notice the mellower blue.
The early blooming rhododendron PJM–that blur of magenta in the upper right of the photo above–and the mass of dark pink hellebore are shades of the same color. I tried in the photo to give an idea of what my eye sees from the upper path. Connected by color, they each combine to create a larger sensation of color.
Some other delights in the back garden–pink hyacinths and Virginia Bluebells (mertensia) and the photo below that filled with lovely daffodils! Perhaps today I’ll get to spend time in the front gardens!
