I love these colors.

Years ago, these two were planted side by side. I deliberately wanted the yellow butterfly bush to stand out next to the flowering plum tree - a great looking contrast.

I'm having a hard time being crabby or a smart A here... this picture is beautiful...

I don't have a problem!

T-Thanks, it only took 8 shots to get the look I wanted. Love those digital cameras. Erin learned in her class that that's one of the secrets, take many of the same subject.
No, no, no....no problem there, unless you count the fact that Aaron won't put in a built-in pool for you. Sheesh!
PS Is the cheese you eat that yellow?

I love love love this combo too. I usually buy one or more each of those chartreuse & purple sweet potato plants (annual) they crawl all over the garden by the end of the season.

Oh yeah Jennifer, I love those too. I haven't had any in the past few years though. There's always next year...

Tracie, I'd love more pics of your house and garden. Puh-leeze?

Hi Maria,
Sure, but what I'm looking mostly at right now, is a bunch of flowers that need to be dead-headed. I'll be on the lookout for a shot or two for you.
