14 Days Of Sunshine - 13

I wish one could really catch the vibrant color these flowers have, it is such a deep, warm and very, very strong pink. I am spoiled knowing my Mama's flower garden, but such clear and radiant color is rarely to be found. Saying all this: I tend to avoid pink and purples when choosing a yarn, and probably would not consider buying such.
That also makes another reason why I love summer. To see this array of colors and to find inspiration in completely unexpected places is not just happening in summer, but to see such extreme hues is.
Now I am planning to alter and finish the pink cardigan I had already begun to, I had put it aside previously as I was thinking I would never wear pink anyhow. Now I might.

Wow, it's so good to see these beautiful flowers during a long, dark, grey, wet afternoon here in edinburgh!
And I know what you mean about the colours. I've been wondering for a while if flowers might have some kind of holographic effect which makes the colours stronger than would be otherwise possible? I think some butterfly wings do this, so it seems plausible, at least?
