Orange Coleus, Blue Pots

Orange is not my favorite color, but those sunset-hued coleus have a certain allure. New growth is almost purple, a color that remains in the veins of the more mature leaves.  My favorite view is this one, looking straight down at the pots. Their cobalt-glazed rims form circles that underscore the angular leaves. Those complementary colors, blue and orange, really do complement each other.
