A lone spire of purple amidst all manner of greenery …
This little flower community is growing in a nearby patch between the sidewalk and the street. It seems like they might be globe gilias (?), but I will have to take a closer look at them the next time I walk by in order to be sure …
Purple flowering trees, gray concrete, blue sky, green leaves, and terra-cotta colored paint … lovely!
I passed this chair today and kept walking … for half a block or so and then turned around to go back and take a picture of it! And then as it happened, a bright yellow cab was just stopping, and I hadn’t noticed the splash of spring green on the fire hydrant or the purple and royal blue of the pole, so while I’d turned around for the robin-egg blue of the chair (not to mention the novelty of such a chair on the sidewalk!), I wound up with a whole fun palette of colors! And it truly was a rainy day: rain, rain, rain, all the livelong day!
And, happy Ides of March! Happy Pi Day too (a day late)!
Garden of paradise scarf … LOVE these colors together! Also: photo taken inside without natural lighting — a sign of another busy day!
These blossoms aren’t five inches across, but I believe this plant is nevertheless a specimen of Star of India Clematis. Read all about it here. I love the way the two blossoms furthest to the right are diagonally aligned with each other!
