And now presented in living color

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.

Calycanthusincolor_2014_FT

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?

What a difference color makes, though I think the center loses some of its interest in the color version.

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?
