  1. Oh so pretty! As I look out of the window, the predominant colours are green and blue – the green of tall trees swishing in the summer breeze and the blue of another beautiful summer sky.
    Love this!

  2. Man, I would totally move in and *live* in some of those photos if I could! My summer feels bright lime green – the color of my kids swim suits – and hot yellow – the color of the heat index.

  3. the color of peace. Can peace have a color? blue. I would say peace is blue 🙂
    the color of hot. Red. It’s been ridiculously hot here on the east coast. Phew!
    the color of cool water. Teal. I need me some cool water about now!

  4. My house is surrounded by trees! Constant shade is my suffering! haha!
    I love the green! Soon, fall will hit and it will change drastically, beautifully…yellow, red & brown!
    Thank you God for my home!

  5. So many shades of green its amazing! Beautiful blue skies with white clouds and then there are the dark gray clouds of summer thunderstorms, pinks, violets and oranges of the flowers around…and one of my favorites>>> beautiful deep red fresh tomatoes from the Farmer’s Market!

  6. We have sweet peas running rampant here- beautiful vibrant pink. They are everywhere growing wild.
    We also have the gorgeous periwinkle blue of the wild chickory….one of my all time favorite colors.

  7. Your photos, Lisa Leonard, are such a wonderful reminder of you…full of life, joy-bringing, God-displaying, gorgeous. Thank you for sharing your way of capturing the world with a camera and handing what you see to us like a beautiful gift. XOXO
