I found this hanging basket in one of my favorite places in the world, Jerome, Arizona. Here magenta petunias hang out in perfect harmony with bright red geraniums.
When I was a teenager, I agonized over whether parts of my outfit color-matched. Red did not “go” with pink and definitely not with magenta! Since I’ve grown older, I’ve mellowed.
I’m reminded of a master gardener who once informed me, “ALL flowers play together, whatever the color of their blooms.” I agree!
There are moments when everything
turns out right.
Don’t let it alarm you: they pass.
