Lime, Magenta and Grape


Never lose an opportunity for seeing something beautiful...


For Beauty is God's handwriting.
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson


I discovered this glorious palette when I went to deadhead the hydrangeas this morning.

It was a surprise too beautiful to keep to myself. Happy day everyone.

Happy Day to you too Susan - it's the little every day treasures which enrich our lives the most.

Yes, the dear Lord knows best. I am participating in a felted wool stitch along and planned to use a leaf shape. Try as I might the ones I cut freehand did not look right. I went to the yard found suitable leaves and traced those for patterns. Perfect! So not only did He create a beautiful palette for you, He created a perfect pattern for me!

Nice photos, Susan, of one of my favorite flowers. Are your the white ones? I usually don't deadhead ours till spring as I enjoy seeing the dried ones out there during our winter rains.

Delicious colours - there are so many wonderful colour schemes in the garden, aren't there!

This color combination always reminds me of Spring (and of asparagus!). Gorgeous photos.

Thank you for your wonderful photos. I just love hydrangeas, and the colours of yours have inspired me. Have been working on my greyscale piece that I printed onto linen, and chose lime/avacado as the main colour. Have been puzzling over what other colours to use with this and here they are in your pictures.so hope you dont mind if I steal the colour scheme of these lovely flowers, of gorgeous colours.


I think we should always look to nature for our colour schemes...because mother nature knows best..
