Color My World

I have a card reader! Actually I'm pretty happy with it-- we'll see if it lives up to expectations. At any rate, I can get the pictures from the last few days off my camera.

Just thought I'd bring you some color from my world.

I've been waiting for that begonia in my planter to kick into gear and bloom. Here you go! Now I have hot pink, purple and orange. Theoretically, these are my least favorite colors, but these are intense, not pastels, and I love the way it looks.

This month's full moon was known as a blood moon. But early in the evening the sky was the deep, deep blue I love so much.

As it got higher, the deep orange color of the moon showed through. I had to use a filter to get the camera to see it, but this was about how it looked to the naked eye.

This morning, the sunrise was peachy and glowing. Sorry about the wires, but I can't go unclip them when I want to take pictures.

On today's walk, I found the cut-leaf teasel in bloom.

And the highbush cranberry (really a viburnum) is just beginning to redden.

Hope you enjoyed the bright spots in life as much as I did!

In other news: rebuilding my files is going... s-l-o-w-l-y, but I didn't expect anything else. I'll need to take it in small doses-- it's making me nuts. I also wrote my monthly column for the newspaper.

Your planter is putting on quite a show with all that wonderful color. Love the shot of the moon. I heard it was supposed to be a blood moon and I meant to look for it but forgot. Your picture is great. I've never been able to get a decent picture of the moon

Hi Ann- sometimes I have luck with moon pix and sometimes not. Who knows why. I'm loving that planter!
