Friday Round Up: Now With Improved Color!

"Seek the strongest color effect possible. . . the content is of no importance."  -- Henri Matisse

I'm a visual person. I'm always drawn to color.

In my landscape. . .

On my toes. . .

(This is my summer "pedi-palette."  I'm currently sporting green toes!)

For a snack. . .

(What?  Doesn't everyone share juicy fruit with their pup?)

And when I make my "purchase of the week!"

Look at this colorful, clever little thing that I found at my local yarn store!  You know how, every once in a while, you just really wish you had a pair of scissors?  Well. . . now you can have a pair with you all the time!  Just slide off the puppy's head. . . and. . .

snip! 

Fits right on your keychain.  $4.99!  (Although when looking for the link, I found you can get them for as little as $4.50!)

I have colorful blooms everywhere in my garden this week!  I can't limit myself to just one. . . so here are four "blooms of the week!"

Echinops (with bonus wasp!)

So glad that I'm not the only one with those specially placed dandelions! ;) Is that a weeping evergreen in front of the dandelion? Very unusual...

Beautiful flowers!

Rachel

You show off color beautifully and the summer pedi-pallet has a great spectrum as does your garden. The snips are darling.
