Oh My Hyacinth!

“Poetry is the synthesis of hyacinths and biscuits.”_CarlSandburg

The lovely colors of lavender, purples and orchid will be the prime color of the Promise Garden container gardens this year. It is also one of the selected colors for the new garden bicycle. There is nothing so beautiful as the varying hues of hyacinths and spring flowers as the garden palette. You can guess from the site header that these are my 2012 color choices!

Garden Design on my Mind…

I am in the city this week but the Promise Gardens are not far from my mind.  I am so excited about the recent finds to complete the new Secret Garden and Shabby Chic outdoor studios.  The bicycle posted below became a quest for me and at the most unexpected place, I found the perfect bicycle.  I will not describe but will surprise you when completed and in its proper place in the gardens.

Colder weather has brought low temps at night but the roses are screaming to bud and I believe they will be earlier this year.  Did you see them last year?  Here’s an image from one of the rose gardens last year which I have uploaded to my Pinterest.  This is the antique rose garden and the wonderful Rosa Munda has preeminence.
