Colors of Sunsets and Flowers

Last evening I watched the sunset—it bloomed orange, yellow, white, mauve, and a tiny bit of pale pink.




This afternoon, I saw the colors of the sunset in my garden. Orange fritillaries on mauve milkweed blossoms:


Orange daylilies:



Yellow daylilies too:



Yellow prickly pear:


Yellow squash blossoms:


White oak-leaf hydrangea:


And white yucca:


Pink roses:


And pink lilies:


But the sunset didn't have the color of Job's tears:


Or my butterfly bush (except for the butterfly):


Or even this yarrow:


Still, it was pretty colorful.

I wish I knew all the names of everything like you do. I have some of that stuff. But I'll never remember.

Yummy! I haven't feasted on a sunset like that in weeks. We were hit with another storm last night.
