Adding color to the garden

There are many ways to add color to the garden.  For some, it’s just about the plants, others the design.  If you’re in the design camp, you know color can come from many sources.

My herb garden, a.k.a. butterfly host garden, is very colorful now.  With just a cent of color coming from art, this garden is colorful all on its own.  But there are other areas of the garden that begged for bragging.

Below is a garden bench that becomes garden art.  The concrete leaf from Lasting Impressions is a punctuation mark to emphasis the effect.

Bottle Trees add color to the garden.  Here stands a re-barred design crafted by Pete Kennedy from Garner, NC.  Happy in my Butterfly Garden, a garden type that welcomes whimsy.

For those seeking color from plants, this pair of Spider Lilies caught my eye from the many found in my fall garden.  This pair is a nod to my friend who gave them to me.  Here, he and I stand – with a friendship lasting as long as this long-lived bulb.
