Lavender Lady

The sun peeked through the trees and illuminated this lovely lavender lady just as I entered the garden. I had parked the car shortly after dawn, strapped on my camera and excitedly walked across the partly dark road into the entrance. Always a morning person, I greet each day with optimism and enthusiasm, and the prospect of meeting new kinds of beauty for the first time is especially stimulating. I believe this curiosity and optimistic interest has been a major factor in keeping me alive and healthy for so long. I hope you enjoy this portrait of Lavender Lady, a Colorado Columbine, and a new day before you.

Blue is my favorite color but please don’t misunderstand, I love all the colors of the rainbow. For some reason when I see the color blue I feel calm and connected. I was eager to share my portrait of a blue Columbine, the state flower of my home state of Colorado, that I met one recent morning. Below my blue Columbine you will find some more tidbits about the color blue.
