Green Visions

A few green twists to the garden that caught my eye lately:

Grass "columns" were recently installed by Pieter Bouterse Studio to disguise ugly metal poles in a tent.
The first thing guests did was, of course, to go up to the columns and touch them.

I am loving this coleus with the fringed leaves, green uppers and burgundy unders.

As soon as I find out the exact name, I'll let you know.


Doesn't it look beautiful when there is a breeze?

Fun idea to have an equisetum wall! Equisetum needs plenty of moisture.

This is my year of papyrus. It is my first year of growing it and I have big plans for it next year in containers. It grows to an impressively tall height. Its airy green plumes love to wave in the breeze.



What are your favorite ideas for the garden?

  5. gorgeous textures and colors..
    garden plants come in so many shapes sizes and colors, but I find myself falling back for the old standby's like roses and lavender..
    perhaps I'm unimaginative.. :)
    best,

  6. There is nothing like a Christmas tree to enjoy at Christmas time. Christmas tree shopping is an important part of the festival fun for the kids too.
