Again with the pondering....


While purchasing pool supplies at Home Depot, I spied moss rose, I bought 2, one had one orange and on yellow flower on it, the other had one pink. Brought them home and when they started blooming, I have 2 shades of orange, 2 shades of pink, white and yellow in one pot, and yellow and 2 shades of pink in the other pot.
I said to Bob, all these colors don't GO together.


Let the pondering begin.... I mean who decides?  who decided?



I have always heard orange/pink/yellow do not go together, but look at the above photo! Who is it that decides/decided what color goes with what color or NOT?
I read another view on what goes with what at Susan's Post today, don't miss it. Just A Moment


 I love my multi colored garden basket of moss roses... when the sun hits them at 10 am they burst into blooms and the hotter the sun the pretty they get. And I stare at them from my kitchen all day.


Every now and then, NOT OFTEN, I go out and


Croon, OH LOOK, a DOUBLE BLOOM.... Snap!


Snap!

 And Snap Again!

These flowers are beautiful, I wish we had some this beautiful, And they do go together because God made them to. Susan is always so good and yesterday was one of her best with the flicker.

Aren't they just adorable flowers? We have a desert rose here that kind of resemble those.

Remington said...

I love the moss rose....we always have them in the summer. Beautiful pics....I can't wait until we have something blossoming in our yard....

Deb said...

I love moss rose..have never had luck with it...my Mom has always had it...

Chatty Crone said...

I'll have to check your friend out.

However - who said they don't go together - they are gorgeous together - I think. Very pretty!

Sanp away,

Whoever said yellow, orange and pink don't go together didn't live in the 60s. :)) Moss roses are just wonderful, I think.

"Auntie" sezzzzzz... said...

I'd *make believe* that they grew that way, in Nature. (Not planted, to be sold) And Nature can do no wrong. So.... There's your answer. ,-)

Those Rules, they are always changing. Just like lots of Rules-Some-Bossy-Person-Laid-Down-Long-Ago things.

Pam said...

I will just have to be content with your beautiful selection, Sandra.. as I don't have a blooming desert rose.
cheers

Nellie said...

I say - go with the colors that give you happiness! All colors blend together in our creation! Now, you've made me want to go shop for moss roses.:-)

TexWisGirl said...

it takes all kinds - of flowers and people. :)

Rose said...

I have not read the other view of what goes with what, but I tell Roger anything goes with anything...just look at the colors God put together.

Beth said...

I love moss roses.... they are SO colorful! Beautiful shots!

Scott said...

So colorful and sweet.

Cheryl @ The Farmer's Daughter said...

Now I've got a hankering for moss roses! These are lovely and the colors are beautiful. All of nature's colors are beautiful, I think.

Madi and Mom said...

WELL here is my 2 cents.
I've always heard if it grows together in nature then it GOES together. LOL

I love all the vibrant colors especially the orange and pink.
My friend recently made me a bracelet and earrings (May 7 post) to match a necklace I've had for years. Pinks and oranges in it too

I love Moss Rose! Yours are so colorful and beautiful! I love seeing flowers from my kitchen window! I just saw some at the super walmart the other day, I was in a hurry, but I will be going back to get some. It's funny that you are talking about colors going together. This is the first year that I mixed pinks, purples and reds together in my front yard flower bed. :) I'll have to take pics and post them one day. I Love TexWisGirl's comment and I completely agree!

Tipper said...

I think they go great together-so pretty : )

George said...

I like your multi-colored blossoms. Our rose beds have colors that "don't belong together', but we sure like the way they look.

Ruth's Photo Blog said...

I say they look great together. Now I probably would choose not to wear all those colours together as clothing,but they look fabulous in the garden.

barbara l. hale said...

I love moss rose! I think it comes in delicious colors.

Jane said...

Of course they go together!
Who makes the rules?
They look so beautiful, what a great find for you. I love the moss roses. They will grow perfectly there in your climate.
What beauties to see today, thanks Sandra.

Debby@Just Breathe said...

Thank you, I love Moss Roses so much. They didn't do well in our yard here but my dad had them every year growing up.

Maple Lane said...

I remember having some of these one summer. I love the bright and cheerful colors. I think in Nature, that all colors go together!!! Wishing you all a good weekend. Hope Baby is doing well.

Beatrice P. Boyd said...

Sandra, who not snap away with all those beautiful colors. At first I thought this was coreopsis, because it also blooms in several colors.

In Love With Sunflower said...

Your multi-colored basket of moss roses are pretty! They may come in varied colors that may not go together but they're very appealing to me... I'm glad to know that you find time to visit the gym 5 days a week. God bless you Ms Sandra :)

Angela said...

I think they look great together! Very beautiful flowers!

Ann said...

I don't know who decides/decided but I think they are full of bologna.
I've had people order cakes with some very strange sounding color combinations. After I finished decorating the cake though I see that it doesn't look bad at all.

S. Etole said...

Thank you, Sandra. Isn't it strange how nature's color combinations always look terrific?! I'm hoping to plant some moss roses here before too long.

Betsy from Tennessee said...

They all look GREAT together, Sandra... We have flowers of all shapes and sizes and colors ---and they look good together...

There are some things --when thinking of clothes--that I still wouldn't put together (even though some people do these days)... I do not like seeing a man in a navy coat and black pants or vice versa. I also do not like seeing a man with dress pants on and WHITE socks... My picky list goes on and on---but I'm not as worried about those things as I used to be.

Hugs,
Betsy

Kathy said...

Whoever said that orange and pink and yellow don't go together, you just proved them wrong!

SquirrelQueen said...

I like all these colors together, the orange matches the orange center of the pink. Moss roses are so pretty I need to find some for my patio. Mama Nature doesn't play by the rules as the Flicker's stripes and polka dots illustrate. Who says they don't go together?

DawnTreader said...

In nature, anything goes! :)

Rebecca said...

I agree with Dawn Treader. I bought one of those for a potted plant arrangement. Something with shades of all the same color of salmon. I was surprised when the next bloom that came up was yellow! Oh well, now I have a salmon/yellow mix going on.

Lynne said...

I like all the colors moss roses give. I plant 4 barrels of them. Very pretty! :)
