Colors of August


It's time for the colors of August!!!!




Every month, since October last year, bloggers around the world share the colors in nature that inspire them.


This month, I took photos in the trial gardens in Prescott Park, Portsmouth, NH where a wide variety of flowers are tested each year.


We've got 3 months left to round out the year of colors (October 2009 - October 2010). You're welcome to join in this month, even if you've never played before!


Even though this toad might not be beautiful, the colors would work great together in a woven item!



To show your colors, just make a blog entry with your photos, and add a link to it here:


Please make sure your blog entry points back to this blog entry, so people can find the other colors of the month too!!


Happy August!!

If you're in the northern hemisphere, I hope that the last solidly summery month is a good one for you!

Good wishes to folks in the southern hemisphere too!!

What great August colors! I've been taking shots, but have yet to get them organized into a Colors of August post. Hopefully I can do that over the weekend and get mine up early next week.
