Summer of Color Week #3

Well here it is Sunday and I had not worked on my choice for the Summer of Color challenge. This week it is LIME GREEN and PURPLE! I do love these colors but have not done much with them together. And as you may have read in the last post, this week has been a busy although non-arty week for me.

So what better place to look for purple and green than in my garden... granted it has been over 100 degrees lately and a lot of flowers are very dead and wilted, but I did find these 2 purple lovelies this morning.

My lovely foxgloves are in full bloom:


And what is left of my hollyhock, which had a very poor showing this year:


Perhaps I will play with those photos in Photoshop Elements 11 this next week when I teach myself about filters and image manipulations...

  1. You have foxgloves! Gorgeous. I covet them but have never grown them successfully. Maybe in this new yard, up against a fence for protection from the %$#@ ever-present wind.

    1. Yes amazingly they grow for me like weeds! I have these under the shade of the apricot tree which probably helps especially in this heat! I love them!

  2. Beautiful flowers, lovely interpretation of the colour. :)

  3. Oh my goodness! Your photos are absolutely stunning! I love how you used this past week's colors in your beautiful photography!

  4. Amazing shots!!. Lucky that some still survive, so we got to see their beauty here :). You must have a lovely garden!
