    Can a single color evoke many moods? I think so...consider yellow. Yellow can be considered cowardly or brash. But, I find yellow to be sunny, cheerful, courageous and optimistic in the garden. Yellow flowers and foliage blend well with many other colors. Yet, yellow captures your attention too! Look closely at the complexity of colors in nature. We desperately need to find kindness, hope, compassion, and courage right now. What colors (and the feelings they evoke) do you see? #itohpeony #bartzella #allium #molly #baptisia #horticulture #gardening #findkindness #findhope #findcompassion

    One of the best blue flowers in my garden is perennial forget-me-not or heartleaf brunnera. Tiny flowers but mighty colorful this spring! Foliage is nice too! #horticulture #brunnera #perennialdorgetmenot #heartleafbrunnera #iowa365 #ia365
