A Splash of Color

Hello everyone,
        I have a little splash of color for you today. This time of year there is lots of color in our garden so I hope will enjoy some vibrant colors for a little change.
  I love the pop of color this obelisk gives the garden and I think the rosy pinks look so pretty against it.
I think this vibrant yellow rose is Golden Celebration.
How about a bouquet of flowers?
Not so mellow yellows
A hint of orange
You might notice I have taken a liking to this blue color!

 Hope you enjoyed a splash of color in your life today.

Thank you Linda at Beautiful Ideas for the lovely features on our garden this past week-your kindness amazes me !
Thank you also to a fellow Island blogger Marguerite at Canoe Corner who came to our garden tour and also did a lovely feature this week!.

Also, as some of you already know Jo Anne Coletti's new magazine The Feminine Home is now on sale here and I am so honored to be included in it.









YES! That last one is me!!!  Don't forget to check it out -I know you will love it!
I am joining Feather your Nest Friday at French Country Cottage today and Show and Tell Friday at My My Romantic Home.
Thank you for visiting,


Carolyn

Oh to have a garden with such flowers and colors.. I'm envious to say the least.. I live in Hot, steamy, swampy part of Florida and there is no way to grow such beauty!
lovely photos!

That shade of yellow in your second picture on the right side just about took my breath away it is so lovely. Enjoy all the color before it becomes the falling leaves kind of color! Have a good weekend!

Carolyn, I really like that blue as well. It really caught my eye when I did the tour and got me thinking of adding splashes of colour to my own garden.

Beautiful photos, Carolyn. The colors are so vibrant! Love hearing the music also. "You Raise Me Up" is one of my favorites.
