The colors of August

August night

I've written before about the different colors I associate with the seasons and months of the year (like the color of January). August is one of those months that doesn't really have any American holiday attached to it that serves as a good iconic representation of the month the way one can draw a cute little jack-o-lantern in orange and black to represent the month of October. As a child I decided that the perfect representation of August was a big yellow sunshine wearing sunglasses with a smile. Any iconic representation of the beach seemed fitting too. Then I expanded to include sunflowers and black-eyed susan's as well. Over the years bright yellows and oranges have become the colors of August for me--not the more muted russet tones of autumn, but bright glowing oranges that seem to radiate heat. Yes, those are the colors of August for me.

Pin It!

Oooooh, yes! That is SO August. That dull/dark shade of orange.

I am so in love with this photo, and slightly envious, [in a very good way] of you taking it.


Love it....

Sunflowers ARE August! So lovely...I even ran across some yellow gerber daisies with a brown middle. So cute!
