Sunday afternoon, in Northern Greensboro, the skies turned an interesting shade of blue. As we drove by the intersection of North Battleground and Old Battleground Avenue, the above scene caught our attention. All we could think of were the lyrics of a 17th century nursery rhyme, "Lavender's blue, dilly dilly, lavender's green......"*
Some days, we plan ahead in our photographing for Greensboro Daily Photo. Other days, serendipity takes over and a scene just grabs the eye. We aren't even sure of the name of this bush. For sure, it isn't lavender. We do know that, for a brief few minutes this weekend, this blooming shrub in Greensboro blended in with the late-afternoon sky.
*This folk song has a really interesting history and a lot of versions. Read more, here.
