Contrast


Contrast shapes.

Shrubs, trees & flowers.

Pic My French Country Home.  What is better than contrasting foxgloves with mophead hydrangeas?  Several Italian cypress are going in a garden today.  The gravel courtyard is round and the nearby crape myrtles arc in silhouette.

Hosta, fern & hellebore are my shade trinity and contrast to extreme.  Tara's Trinity of the Southern Garden: Azalea, Camellia, Hydrangea.  Contrast AND keeps something in bloom every day of the year in your garden.

Great example to a great approach - one that always will work. Nothing like untrained people teaching people to do the opposite, then wonder why few embrace xeriscape, etc.

So many lessons here - taking notes.

Before reading I thought the post would be titled "lollipop land". Love the example of contrast you chose, and look forward to seeing your finished installation.

This isn't a comment on this blog post, but on the comment you posted this morning on Maria's blog. I am still chuckling. Priceless compliment! Love your style. And your blog!
