We are once again in Fall season as the leaves change color, the skies are azure blue, the fall mums are blooming and we await the final days of color that will turn to bare trees and snowy ground. Fall is a favorite time of year to photograph the forests in the Shenandoah Valley and in the Promise Gardens before winter. We are off again to capture them all.
Enjoy the season as the Promise Gardens prepare for bedding down for winter soon. We will miss their blooms but anticipate them again in Spring!
It’s that time again and one of our favorite summer joys of putting together this year’s summer porch, its decor, pots and arbors of flowers and color-themed that becomes a favorite spot for entertaining. For 2016, we continued the white, aqua, teal and lime green theme. This year we added new clematis, coleus, creeping jenny filled pots, dahlia and more. A new aqua-cream chevron rug, aqua umbrella, aqua-lime placemats and colored pots finish off the design for 2016. The storyboard gives you a hint of the glory we enjoy every day from every view. Take advantage of the beauty we have and design a porch that reflects your love of creation in color and design and take it a step further and photograph it to enjoy prints in your home all year-long.
“Summertime and the living is easy…..”

Our beautiful spring show of peonies are breathtaking this year and every year their display of color and beauty WOW us. This is our favorite flower next to the rose and a must-have in every garden. We collect them and Promise Gardens has over 40 varieties. A quick iPhone shot before the rains for our Sunday dinner table. Collect them in your garden and they will become your favorite too. Watch for more from our upcoming Promise Gardens Photo Shoot.
It is almost show time again in the Promise Gardens and we are preparing the plethora of show pieces of colors, textures, flowers of every kind and description. Grabbed a quick shot of these right before the deluge that is upon us. This is definitely our favorite time of the year with the beautiful colors of spring, the trees blooming and happiness abounding in taking it all in. Enjoy the season!
Beautiful Spring! We are happy to see the flowers begin to bloom and are looking forward to this year’s beauties as they grow another year in fullness and show. The sun is shining brightly here in the Valley which means our flowering trees are popping out all over. It’s a cheerful place and since we all love the colors of spring, a repeated post was in order. This is a combination of my favorite colors and the inspiration color palette for my beach house and formal areas of blue and white. Isn’t it lovely?
At Promise Gardens we are always thinking color, color scheme, color palette, storyboards and especially for each new garden season. What will it be this year? Pastels or bold colors? We shall see!
