Heh. I enjoyed doing the color profiler most. Apparently I'm a ruby person (no surprise there...). The Color Quiz was accurate to a scary degree. thanks for the links!


I guess I'm a ruby person too. This is a great post and I will explore it more. You are so creative!

I should really be getting ready for work - your post is a great way to kill an hour! I love purple. It is yellow I have issues with.

I love color, the more the better. Some find it overwhelming and others soothing.. That is what makes all gardens and gardeners unique..

The purple petunia was the first 6 pack of flowers I purchased well over 30 years ago, the fragrance got to me when I walked by. I blame the purple petunia for my gardening habit, I still buy fragrant purple petunias every year, nice photo, they are not easy to photograph and get good color.


Interesting - two reds among us. I came out "Water Beads" or blue. No surprise! If I had to pick one favorite color, blue would be it.

WG, I like yellow better out of the garden than in. But I ended up with a whole yellow area at my front entrance (violas, daylilies, sunflower, coreopsis) and I really like it!

IGW, all the petunia photos I take simply do not do justice to the color. I'm not satisfied with the one in this post, but it's the best I had!
