A Garden Canvas

More than half the year  a four-season garden is dominated by neutral shades

Middle Garden in WinterWinter Wisdom

Color is but a fleeting memory in the gardener’s mind’s eye

But then it begins…

The plans a  gardener has labored over throughout the winter months now are birthed

Oriental Lily

Every conceivable shade and color combine to create our garden canvas

Flowers in the foundation garden Lantana and Lobelia

Marigold flowers

But our minds never rest

We are already mixing color and planning future portraits
