Nature’s Colors

October 16, 2011

I spent pretty much the entire day outside today racing the season again. Mostly I worked down the list of unglamorous seasonal chores I have been dragging my feet over. I made a lot of progress but it doesn’t make for particularly interesting reading; however the dry air and low sun angle do seem to combine for unusually vibrant colors in odd corners of the garden.

Examples follow:

A confused “June bearing” strawberry transplant provided a tiny surprise treat that was so red I spotted it from 30 feet away:

A Thai basil plant in the shade provides a nice lavender/green contrast:

Deep purple, from the same plant ( I have no idea why the thumbnail rotates sideways; the full picture opens normally):
