[R] Color scale graphic

Recently, I've been dealing with a seemingly simple problem. I have a table with two columns filled with values from a test I made (say, amount of precipitation and Months measured). Now, instead of plotting a typical linear graphic with precipitation on the y-axis and the months in the x-axys, I would like to "convert" the values of precipitation in a color gradient, resulting in a vertical gradient throughout the x-axis. In this way, months with higher precipitation would appear reddish while lower precipitation would appear blueish, for example. Despite being a simple problem (basically converting the y-values in a color gradient), I have failed to find a way of doing this.

If someone knows how to solve this, either using R or other program, please lend me a hand.

Thanks for your attention
