In last week’s post, I promised you the color versions of the flowers. Here they are. I hope you’ll let me know if you enjoy them more in black and white or in color.
Consider the lilies, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; but I tell you, not even Solomon in all his glory clothed himself like one of these. – Luke 12:27
A red/pink striped amaryllis reminds me of watermelon.
Small yellow flowers; I like the smaller flowers at their center, but they show up better in the black and white version.
I like the combination of this calycanthus’ deep red petals and pale yellow tips.
A chewed-up flower. There’s an ant on the petal at 8 o’clock. Did you see it better in the black and white version?
A lovely purple-pink foxglove
What a difference color makes, though I think the center loses some of its interest in the color version.
Looking up at a pink smoke tree named “Grace” against the blue sky
This one’s name is “Golden Panther.” It’s fabulous.
Pale yellow jessamine
I have a greater appreciation for the description “Lily white” now.
Orange and shimmery.
Poppies to be? Or poppies spent?
My mom emailed me after last week’s post to tell me this is a poppy. I guess I think of them as mostly red or orange instead of pink.
Did any of the flowers’ colors surprise you? Do you have a new favorite?
