Garden Brilliance

I've often wondered why all the flowers up here in Maine seem to have so much more color and brilliance than anywhere else? My husband, the meteorologist says it has to do with the atmosphere, but I think the flora just loves the cool days and nights and the occasional fog that envelopes them, keeping them nicely hydrated. Same reason I love it here so much. Although some might find the frequent fog annoying (particularly tourists), I find the quiet solitude gives me time for reflection and introspection.
