Color, I love it!


What I enjoy most about gardening is…..

   IMG_2235  trying to find the “perfect” plant leaf and/or flower color combinations!  Sometimes it works, sometimes not so much.

I like this combo of brilliant blue Lithodora and gold creeping jenny accented with these garage sale finds….the glass balls in two shades of blue and one in orange.


You will find some form of yellow, lime-green, blue and orange through out my garden.  Here is another example.

IMG_2246 We mixed Peach Flambé Heuchera with an orange wallflower and some sedum “Angelica”.  They are planted in front of a “Spring Bouquet” Vibernum.  You notice I have some volunteer foxglove coming up in the Heuchera…I really like foxglove, this one will be PINK…..good with the Heuchera, not as much with the wallflower.  So, you see…I win some and lose some but as the saying goes “in nature all colors go together”.

Guess what…more yellow and blue!

oooh, that last photos is my shade garden. Blue and lime green! I can't get the pink foxgloves going but the yellow do selfseed. Happy spring, Jan.
