Orange and Red Inspired by Sarah over at Mitenska, I spent a quiet evening alone this week sorting through photos that I have taken over the past year for this blog and segmenting them into colours. Colour is such a powerful influencer of mood in our lives and as reminiscing over past events, moments in time and progression in the garden can also have the same effect for me it was a lovely hour or so well spent.
Purple, green and rich burnt oranges and reds have always been among my favourites; rich earthy, jewel-like tones appear on my nails, in my home and in my flower vases. Although I can appreciate the elegance of pastels, it is the urgency and passion of these colours that really appeals.
