Fall Complements

Compliment vs. complement: Do you know the difference?

Compliment – an expression of praise, admiration, or congratulation
Complement – a thing that completes or brings to perfection

I’m talking about complements here, specifically complementary colors. These are colors that are opposite each other on the color wheel. They complete each other, enhance and perfect each other.  These are examples from my fall garden.
