Blog 148 – Thursday, May 28, 2009 Sun mixed with rain and temperatures in the 80’s.
Sunlight contributes to chlorophyll and the "greening" of plants but rain provides the rainbow of color intensity that has been evident in my garden these past several days. As the rain washes over each flower and plant, the hues are bold and bright – as if illuminated from within; their translucent petals provide a palette of hues. As the eye scans the garden, the colors dance and sparkle against the forest green of the vegetation, which provides a backdrop of contrast and compliment. The mulch, its red, rust-like carpeted walkway gives balance and anchor to the composition – the natural art form that flanks my yard and provides aesthetic beauty. Now parting, the clouds give way to a rich blue – much like the crayon in the box of 64, between cornflower and denim – I am privileged to the inspiration of creativity which feeds my creative side – within the walls of my own backyard.
