Color Inspiration for the Marbled Parrot Feathers

With the garden bloomin' and rich in color, I thought it would be fun to show you some of my inspiration for the color combinations I use. Most all of these flowers are grown from seed and reside in big pots scattered amongst the garden flowers.  The rest are perennials.
Such a beautiful color combo!

The honeysuckle vine~perfect hummingbird attractor

a new kind of sunflower~one of Burpee's Hybrids

cockatoo feathers are a perfect white canvas

a color combination that heralds Springtime

One of the new kinds of zinnias seeds I tried this year, very easy to grow
from seed and flowers show dual shades of coral

this marbled cockatoo feather reflects the colors of the
natural Moluccan cockatoo head feathers

  1. Your feathers are as bright and colorful as the flowers my are a master of color and deriving from nature is one of the best ways to showcase the use of color..... You KNOW I am one of your biggest fans...and I love all of your feathers and am always have to go eeney, meeney, miney, moe when choosing and buying.... I love the oranges and yellows....that seems to be where my color interest lies this year....
    Keep up creating these masterpieces......
