“I know that if odor were visible, as color is, I’d see the summer garden in rainbow clouds.” Robert Bridges
For this wonderful exercise in seeking colorful things, I took a trip to the New York Botanical Garden in the Bronx, and had a blast capturing the wide range of exotic, colorful blooms there. At different points during my visit, I had to pause and take in the magnificence of nature’s hand in painting flowers, fish and landscapes in rich, textured colors. It was exhilarating, and I would encourage everyone to spend some time at their local botanical garden; a wonderful way to enjoy nature’s gifts to us – sheer, unadulterated beauty.
“With the brush we merely tint, while the imagination alone produces color.” Theodore Gericault
I hope you enjoy your walk through the beautiful gardens with me. There was such an explosion of color and a very brightly shining sun that it was intoxicating at times. Sometimes, it is best to showcase the photos and let them do the talking… There are more below
“Every form is a base for color, every color is the attribute of a form.” Victor Vasarely
More colorful blooms for your delight…I probably should have organized them by type but it doesn’t matter… Nature doesn’t discriminate when showering us with her gifts…
It all started in The Conservatory, and then I wandered outside and captured flowers in the perennial gardens… Lots of fun and people taking pictures or posing for them; like the lovely lady woman did for me above.
What are your thoughts? What Colorful things did you find? Did you have an easy or hard time with this exercise? Do share? Thank you!
