I was sitting by the potager last night and realized all the colors in this space work in perfect harmony. It was a rather fortunate thing since it wasn’t planned. Some of the flowers were planted, many self seeded and came up of their volition in the spot of their choosing.
The colors range from purple to light pink with varying shades of white and chartreuse mixed in. Overall they combine beautifully. This garden is filled with dill, carrots left to bloom, onion blossoms, ‘Limelight’ hydrangeas, various colors of hollyhocks, bee balm, catmint, Italian pink flowering oregano, thyme, purple cabbage, red lettuces bolting to bloom, tarragon and a few other colorful beauties.
It’s a happy accident indeed, I couldn’t have achieved a better combination if I had tried. Sometimes not trying and allowing the garden to do what it wants ends up being the best in the end.
What’s your favorite color combination in the garden?Filed under Around the House | Comment (1)
