well truth be told it was my *husband* who picked out the trim colors!  I'm
a very colorful person, but he had this thing about "brown" (batchelor for
46 years until we met) I guess I affected him.  He actually took a petunia
to the paint store to match the color for the trim <g>.  That was quite the
site to see with a curmudgeonly computer magazine editor :)

Fact is, it attracts the hummingbirds.  And the other neighbours on our
ranch LOVE it, because it's a such a vibrant addition.  I never would have
imagined a house in those colors (and I'm a weaver who works with colors)
but darn I loved it when it was done :)

We call the place Norbu Khang which is Tibetan for "The Jewel House"
