In my garden Spring is all about flowers...in all colors!
Predominantly my frontyard is composed of three main colors: purple, yellow and orangey-red.
But, an occasional pink flower and definitely some white flowers can be found.
These colors were chosen because of their boldness. You see I have a pretty large frontyard and if the colors weren't bold they'd be barely noticeable from the street.
Purple...orange...yellow - such an eye-pleasing combo to me!
The local garden club in our area surprised me with this. It was very sweet of them to bestow this honor on my hardworking garden. I do the planting and weeding...but the plants create all the beauty!
I've never seen a group of the green grasshoppers...Lubbers, yes. They look like little plastic soldiers all perched on these liriope leaves.
And, this butter yellow dragonfly adds a little more sunshine to the garden.
But what about this fella...brown is not my favorite color in the garden but he is part of the habitat. He is a brown water snake and not a water mocassin...don't you think?
