Monday 13 | A Year of Mondays Project

The truth.  I am fascinated with the ever changing combinations that I can create with plants.  For me, it’s not about the growing or the wonder of the natural world, it’s about the flow–about the change.   It never fails each spring that I discover or re-discover a grouping of  foliage  that stops me and makes me think  ‘Hmm.  That’s lovely.  Have to remember that…’   The next time I look, it will be different.  It’s a fleeting moment of visual joy. This morning it was roadside daylillies, Vinca minor and Kierengeshoma palmata.

  1. The greens appearing together are great. for me it’s watching my European Ginger over take the scilla. Both form tight blankets in their own seasons. Watching them trade off is beautiful. (Hellebores and daffodils are anchors among them.)

    Somehow-even after gardening for all of these years I’m still surprised and delighted by it.

    My favourite here is Lysimachia ciliata ‘Firecracker’ and aegopodium podagraria Variegatum (see third picture down http://www.veddw.co.uk/garden/guide.html).

    The freshness of all the young foliage is what makes it all so good. wish i looked so immaculate and vibrant….

    I agree wholeheartedly w/your assessment of feeling young and vibrant…perhaps if we could grow new again each spring!
