The sudden changing of the colors sparked a thought in my head, which was that it might be possible to design a garden that changed colors every few weeks. If I planted perennials of similar colors that bloomed about the same time, I could theoretically synchronize a color show in certain areas of my yard.
To do so would require me to keep a log of the blooming dates of the various plants in my yard (although I could also use the many images and blog posts I have generated over the years to speed up the process). Then there would be the relocation of existing plants, purchase of new perennials, and fine-tuning of the blooming schedules to keep like-hued plants near each other at the correct times via the use of my laptops and a Linksys router.
On second thought, I will just enjoy the happy accident for the moment.
