Painting the Garden…It’s All About the Flowers
Flowers and color, where would we be without them in the garden? We have the lovely greens of grass, trees and leafy plants and the varied blues of the sky as our backdrop so each year for the Promise Gardens Rose & Flower Show, we have every color/hue imaginable on display. In our container gardening areas and special beds, we mix it up each year with new color combinations and plants to create “awesome eye-candy” for our visitors, friends, family and of course, our photography. This is a special treat for me as a designer deciding what “new” and “old” creations I can design for a visual and aromatic feast.
A friend recently shared that their favorite part of visiting Promise Gardens was “just as I enter the gate area, the aroma of roses and flowers entice me in and then my eyes just take it all in and I swear each time I will recreate this myself at home so I can see and smell it all day long.” Well, that is also one of my favorite things too!
