Blue is the inspiration for a section of our back garden–
the blue of Chinese porcelain.
Here is the area about to be transformed. Yes, we really wanted to hide our neighbor's trailer. That pile of branches, in the foreground, is what's left of a pyracantha hedge that grew in the middle of the yard.
A vine, grape and rose covered fence hid the neighbor's place within three years.
The "borrowed landscape'" of background trees simply frame a varied planting.
In this small area of the garden brickwork defines a birdbath centered parterre, which is bordered by a rose covered bench enclosure. Three vine covered metal arches line an east-west axial path. Isotoma is planted at the base of the birdbath.
You can't have a blue garden without a touch of complementary orange. Phyllis Bide rose provides soft tones and
abutilon kicks it up a few notches
only making the blue forget-me-nots more saturated.
Purple clematis also serves to enrich the blues.
Blue color is everlastingly appointed by the Diety to be a source of delight.
