On Wednesday I went to the trial gardens just down the road for my lunch break, and it was amazing. I only got to see about half of what's there during my one hour...that place is huge! And I got lots of ideas of plants that would potentially look good planted around our house. For example - I like the idea of this tree and this plant near each other:
I just love bright spring green coupled with the purplish/red color.
This ones great too...its soft and beachy and it blows a lot in the wind.
I don't have a green thumb at all, and I've never thought twice about plants or landscaping or anything like that. But then when I saw all the different colors, textures, and shapes of all the plants, I was immediately interested and inspired.
This is a 3 day weekend for me - YAY! I'm going to try to take advantage of it and get some projects done. I'll probably paint the hallway, and maybe some other smaller projects too.
Hope everyone has a great long weekend!
