Today I would like to take a few moments to enjoy the variety of colors that the spring flowers bring. This is my last day photographing at Dataw Island - tomorrow will be spent editing photos for them. This and another job will hopefully provide the money needed to start the 401c-3 paperwork for the foundation. I am grateful to Dataw Island for the opportunity to do this.
Dataw is definitely in bloom at the moment. Here are some of the varieties in bloom. First, the yellows . . .
And some reds...
Purple is a "royal" color because for centuries there was no purple dye besides a rare type of sea snail. The color has only been readily available in the last century, an artificial dye being developed in the early 1900's.
There are even a few orange...
And the whites . .
Jasmine, with its intoxicating perfume is in bloom all over, both wild and cultivated.
There are a few mixed colors ..
And then there are the "guardians" of the flower beds. These guys were all around wondering what I was so interested in. The squirrels here are so tame you can almost hand feed them. I guess they never heard of Brunswick Stew. .
Have a great Sunday !!
