A Rainbow in my garden

This is my easy way of remembering the colours of the rainbow (may come in useful if you find your self on "Who wants to be a millionaire".

Richard (red)

Of (orange) - try hard to ignore the very sad dead daffy!
York (yellow)

Gave (green)

Battle (blue)

In (Indigo - poetic licence invoked!!)

Vain (violet)

Richard of York, gave battle in vain. Remember where you heard it and send me a share in your winnings!!!

I love your garden rainbow! I had rainbow washing this week too :-)
Rainbows certainly are the most delightful of things to spot in the world around us, aren't they?
Have a lovely weekend,

I am drawn to rainbow colours in life, and have to arrange things in rainbow order - even if some of the colours are missing.
Love your garden!

I had long forgotten that saying, thank you for reminding.
Thank you for your lovely comment on my Etsy post, it really did make me smile. As for those night sweats, hope you get over them soon but in the mean time you'd better email me your address ; )
Have a great weekend

Love your rainbow plants, even those with only a poetic licence.

Lucky you having all that colour in your garden. Your use of poetic licence is fine by me!
