    There’s that combination of chartreuse and fuschia again! I have such strong memories of it from the 1950s — possibly because my mother saw fit to paint the bathroom in these colors. And, of course, we had some of the Melmac dishes that echoed the color scheme. (The dark green in the dish photo was called forest green, and my parents bedroom was that color, until my dad put his foot down and said it was just too depressing.)

    If Mom were still alive, I’d buy this one and frame it as a Christmas gift. I can guarantee it would make her smile.

    • Ah…unbreakable Melmac. I remember them and, I think, our collection of them came courtesy of Ivory Snow or some other laundry detergent.
      Making your Mom smile would be high praise indeed. Thank you, Linda.

    You don’t need words Steve. The colours speak for you.

    I’m with Andrew. Some images not only often don’t need any explanation, but also might well be better off without any superfluous prattle. Not that you’re prone to prattle, by any means, I hasten to add. Enough said.

  5. Great use of color. I like hibiscus. The hummers love the red ones.

    • We’ve been very lucky with ours, Yvonne. We bought just one plant, but it has multiplied a bit so we have plenty of blooms to look forward to for the next month or so. Something attacks the leaves but happily not the flowers. Our hummingbirds are starting to leave for southern climes and don’t really visit these as much as the bee balm that is just finishing up.

  6. Call it Thoughtful Thursday, and therefore a day on which not much need be said.
