white wednesday - garden colours
Here are some photos from my garden to cheer you up and bring you a bit of our spring!
My garden is made in groups of plants. Meaning: you can find places with a bunch of lavender; rosmanin; pomegranates; hebes; ... so when it flowerishes we have a blust of colour here and there. It is also planed in a way that we always have something with flowers here and there even during winter! When we don't have flowers we have fruits such as the pomegranates. It is a wonderful garden in an english/mediterranean style. On my garden you can only find 4colours: white, soft lavender; soft purple and very soft orange. Any other colour is done only on planters. It was a great idea to have done it this way because all colours go together and the ones that flowerish at the same time make a gradative show of colour such as the ones we have right now.
The orange ones come out only in autumn together with berries and give you that perfect autumn feeling.
Although it's a quite small garden ( around 1000m2) it is very rich on plant varieties and fruit trees. I love it and if i do get the chance to sell the house and build another one i will follow the same design structure only adding more group plants and having it on a larger scale!; but... that is still a dream for now!!! I haven't lost hope, however and keep my fingers crossed!!!! hoping to sell it this summer!... You know what is said!: "hope is the last thing to die!"...
I'll try to post my garden design structure on next post so you get the whole picture!!!
