J - Jewels from the garden

For the letter J I'm focusing on the jewel-like colours of flowers (and other edible plants).   In the past year I've begun to do water colour paintings of flowers and the light shining through the petals entrances me.  Here are a few of the jewels I've found.  Who needs rubies or amethyst or sapphires when these are blooming and growing?

I'm posting this also to Tuesday in the Garden over at Sidewalk Shoes.  Check out both the A to Z challenge entrants at the top of the sidebar and the gardeners who're posting here.
