I watch the same patch of sky morning after morning after morning and it still mystifies me with colours that look truly impossible ...
The only way I can describe what it feels like to watch it unfold albeit to terribly quickly and it is gone .. well it is like being a kid at Christmas just in the middle of unwrapping a huge exciting gift .. you don't know what it holds but you are so excited about it !
Very subtle changes within minutes .. literally
Then some mornings it is like a huge sponge soaks up all the colour and the sky goes a dull gray
So then is the time .. knowing full well no one with any sense should be up at the same moment I am gallivanting ? in my garden camera in hand .. exclaiming same said excitement of beautiful flowers in garden ..
Franziska Maria clematis for one .. living in an impossible place on the other side of a roaring giant Bittersweet vine that would consume it in a flash if it could !
That makes it all the more endearing to me .. it taunts a garden bully and thumbs its nose at it !
Then some very girlie pinks show off their colour .. can you ever be too pink I wonder ?
Wargrave Pink geranium is always a gorgeous PINK .. so delicate looking yet such a survivor !
How about "Pink-in-WAITING" ? .. I transplanted Petite Delight Monarda to a much sunnier site to finally give it a chance to show off its beautiful shaggy heads .. I can't think of bee balm without remembering that wonderful spicy aroma .. one of my favorites !
Brass Lantern heuchera is not supposed to be really pink .. but I think a little pink is sneaking in while it can and that is fine with me !
I will be missing in action with the painters coming on Thursday to do the magic trick of their own .. all I can say is .. even just prepping? by getting things off the wall and moving a few other things around so as not to be in their way .. well ... "why do I keep dreaming up projects " is another mystery .. I could lay down on the floor right now and not get up until NEXT Tuesday !
