colorful spring flowers

Just about every color of the rainbow is represented in this flower bed, except for true red.  But there’s red-orange, orange-orange, salmon, soft pink, bright yellow, various greens, blue and purple.  And white, depending on whether you consider it a color or not.  White is sort of the Pluto of colors…

I’m fascinated by synesthesia.  Synesthesia is a blending together of the senses.  There are some people who can taste colors and smell sounds and so forth.

If any of you are lucky enough to have the type of synesthesia where you can HEAR colors, I’d love to know if this flower bed sounds more like cacophony (discordant noise) or more like a symphony (harmonious sounds blended together).

And those of you with plain old vision-vision (like me), how does it appear to you?  Is it a cacophony of color, or a pleasing blend of hues and shapes and textures?

Personally, I like the way some colors are mixed together and others are grouped in monochromatic blobs.  There’s simultaneously both order and disorder, organization and chaos.

Kind of like my office…
