So a few weeks ago I was strolling around upstate and found these potted in downtown Rochester (State Street, to be exact). There was not only cerise, but also orange, yellow and pink! Too much beauty to ignore...

|the cerise is so intense it seems to glow amidst other tones|
While just as bright, the yellow and orange don't have that electric undertone that suffuses the cerise blooms. One interesting thing: the orange flowers have bright pink tips.
