The apricot lily is a favorite of mine. She is back by the hostas and in a somewhat shady location. She doesn't care...she just blooms on and on.
My favorite little petunia with the dark center and veining. She's very photogenic wouldn't you say?

I See My World In Color Now
Many, many years ago I took a painting class..
My teacher was an artist.. a creative sort of lass.
She told me then to see the world... I should take a little ride..
To see the color in all things... in the lovely countryside.
As I was driving in my car and gazing all around..
I saw new colors everywhere... that once to me were brown.
I thought of colors all through the day and even in my slumber..
Yellow ochre, burnt sienna, and a very dark one.. umber.
Colors swirled in my head.. thalo blue and cadmium red..
My dreams were now so full of color I couldn't stay in bed.
I went into my work room.. took my brushes and my paints..
I worked so fast and furious that I began to feel faint.
My painting was completed... and as I hung it up to dry..
I had learned to use these colors... and then I wondered why,
I hadn't seen the world before in colors that were true.
Those painting classes made me see so many different hues.
Because of learning how to paint.. the world is there for me..
To see the colors,vibrant, waiting there for me to see.
