I can’t sleep…ideas for random gardening things keep popping into my head. So I decided to not try and fight it and just take the inspiration and run with it. So this will be mostly a photo post as I find things that fit the ideas in my head!
And it seems like for the most part tonight I’m envisioning the front yard so I’ll run with that. My current plan for the front yard is hot colors (reds, oranges, and yellows). I saw it referred to on a gardening blog as a “sunset” garden (compared to an “ocean” garden) and I think I prefer that description as it would allow me to incorporate a few shades of pink. Anyway, in the front I’m considering the following plants/flowers/trees:
Japanese Red Maple
Red Twig Dogwood
Angel’s Trumpet (yellow)
“Royal Red” Buddleia
And in the fall, lots of mums!
Hmm…it seems inspiration has come and gone…and I might actually be ready for sleep!
