Use Blue In Your Garden

The last color to fade before dark is blue. When everything else has fallen into gray, black, and white, blue persists for a while before it, too, succumbs to darkness. Blue awakens the garden at dawn and then puts it to sleep; it offers a quiet refuge at midday, but comes into its own when the low, golden rays angle into the garden. The idealized color of water, the blue of a glossy ceramic pot can conjure the cool depth of a pool, while matte blue tile can bring a piece of the sky to ground. - Flora Grubb
