Seeking Color

Journaling Spring in My Garden

Today has shifted from sunshine to shadows, but I am in the mood for color, so ignored the blustery breezes and decided to add as much color as I could to my world. Three clay pots now sit on the front porch with sweet pansy plants and colorful primroses. How inviting they look!

I tucked two gazing balls next to the base of the Weeping Norway Spruce. The bright blue colors are most welcome next to the vibrant hues of the evergreen. The gazing balls are some I made several years ago when I was dabbling in ceramics. As long as I remember to take them in before the cold of winter, they survive well. Otherwise they crack and break. I learned my lesson the hard way.

Pretty pansies are now planted in a second Radio Flyer wagon. They side near one another in the front yard shrub bed, reminding me of a wagon train or happy parade.


  1. I love red primroses. I need to go shopping tomorrow. lol.

  2. I want to be your next door neighbor and enjoy your gorgeous yard. Maybe you could help me enhance mine. (smile)

  3. I bought some pansies to plant by the porch tomorrow. I can't wait to step back and enjoy their pretty blooms.
