Guess what I am doing this weekend…
This is my therapy.
So I thought I would share my stress-relievers with you.
Look at those Dahlias back there.
And the Stock poking his head out.
And the red fuzzy Kangaroo Paw… I used to use those all of the time in weddings. They add the most amazing texture! I figured the same concept would apply in my yard.
I think Lamb’s Ear is one of the best garden additions ever. The texture is amazing! And the light, dusty, silvery green shade – perfect to add depth and interest.
And check out that succulent in bottom right corner. That guy is going in a planter – that is a brilliant creation – I am happy it exists.
Texture, variety, depth and interest. Those are important words in my garden design.
These are perhaps the most beautiful petunias I have ever seen.
In fact I think I need some more.
Yep, I do.
This guy is going in a pot too. Perhaps with those succulents above and those petunias….
And some Potato Vine. Which… by the way… is one of my FAVORITE plants ever.
I bought several of them so they can be planted in multiples so they just cascade in a giant array of vines.
Years and many phones ago, I was walking by a home decor store and out in front was a tall pot with TONS of potato vine just draping out, and a bunch of curly willow branches sticking out of the top. It was so striking and simple that I stopped and snapped a picture. Which I no longer have… but I have been forever impressed with the possibility of potato vines.
So have a great weekend everyone. I know I will!
And just in case any of you want to know the secret of having a TON of people talk to you at the grocery store… put a flower basket like this in the top part of your cart.
I made a lot of friends.
