Layers in the Garden - New Ideas for Color?
When I was planting these shrubs and perennials, I tried to design layouts that would eventually create "great views" and by that, I mean colors, textures, flowers and foliage that might be exciting either mixed together or as layers. Some of these plantings are now mature enough that I AM getting some of the views I was hoping for. As I document these I sense that some of these color and texture combinations might inspire new pieces in my wearable art realm.
I edited some of the views I've captured here the past day or two so to illustrate this approach to thinking about color and texture. There's some exciting possibility here, I think!
