|My gardening footwear|
Red is the colour of the moment.
Do you find that dominant colours change significantly in the garden as seasons pass? At the moment my garden is coming through its purple phase and moving in to the much hotter red/orange phase. Large drifts of Alliums and Iris, dainty Primula denticulata, Dodecatheons and Anemones, and the ever prolific Cerinthe are giving way to hot Geums, Blood red Asparagus pea, rows of red lettuce, Asiatic Lilies and many others.
In keeping with the red theme I have pictured my current choice of gardening footwear. Of course the good old wellington boot (green) is my general choice for tougher tasks but my ever faithful Vans, of which I have many pairs, serve me well. A recent post by Charlotte Germane of Daffodil Planter focussed on the footwear of gardeners and I was sad to see that Vans didn't make the cut. I'm also yet to try Crocs but seeing that Billy models them so well and quite possibly has shares in them I may have to give them a go.

What colours dominate your garden? Are there colours that you refuse to grow? And how does colour change how we view gardens?
