I personally garden for two reasons - to be creative and to bring color in my life.
Color is personal. I am very conservative when I choose my clothes but very bold when it comes to my garden. I believe the colors of my garden are a reflection of who I am.
I am happy sitting on one of many benches in the midst of a mass of colorful blooming companions. I use plants like paints to create a work of art.
Here is how I do it.
- I only use color as a focal point by perfectly placing a striking plant in the middle of muted greens .
- I love bold colors to create excitement and vitality to the garden.
- I love warm yellows and oranges mixed with blue and purple.
