Remember what I said? I'm not afraid of color. And here's the proof.

Shazam kabam! There's color in our garden, mainly on our back patio, and while there is no balmy summer heat to go along with it, we can all patiently wait while summer thinks about coming to the cool, damp northwest.

Painted the back wall of the garage, that faces the patio, a bright Frida Kahlo inspired blue. The door an accent color of bright lime yellow. Planted only hot intensely colored plants, experimented with a few cans of spray paint, and shazam kabam! I give you color....

Crazy garden gnome action going on over here!
Color on the patio
And here nature delivers to you a bouquet full of color, straight from the garden...
A bouquet of roses

If summer weather ever arrives, I'll try to capture a whole scene photo for you. Until then, you get the idea: not afraid of color!

Wow! Love it! And I'll gladly send you some of our summer - over 100 this whole week!

You have *those* cannas. LOVE THEM.

Should you feel the need to divide them, I would be happy to take some off your hands. Perhaps in exchange for a bit of chocolate mint or pineapple sage?

Wowzers! Now there's an electric blue! I like it.
