Weekly Photo Challenge: Color

Green is the color of the spring that has finally arrived here in Indiana, but blue is one of my favorite colors. On yesterday’s afternoon walk around town with the dog (who is, sadly, brown) I focused on anything blue*. In some areas, I had to stop every few feet for yet another thing blue. Then I’d walk blocks and nothing was blue.

*OK, I cheated with the hot pink spray paint that spells out ‘lime’, but I needed to have that picture.

Bonus Post: Native Plant Spotlight

I fell in love with the Virginia Creeper on a backyard fence today. Beautiful, friendly, comforting, familiar Parthenocissus quinquefolia. Native plant that grows up trees without strangling them, feeds the birds, and looks a helluva lot like poison ivy (and grows in the same places) but is safe for the itch-prone. [Update: Or so I thought, Wikipedia, however, says VC can also cause a rash. Rats.]

I love the second one in inverse, too. Looks like science & chemistry molecules.
