Color Direction

There is a certain color palette that's distinguishing itself as a running favorite. Although the range is broader and does include reds, purples and a little white- this scheme as depicted in the photo above bronzed leaves of the euphorbia, the sharp limes/yellows of the creeping Jenny, blue green sedum, dark wine wiegela in the background and a corally orange fuschia - emerging as a favorite. Compare this new spring compostion with a capture from another bed at the end last fall. The palette is a nod towards one I've seen before magnificently rendered in the cottage gardens at Sissinghurst, where this view of the cottage reminds me a little of the porched entrance to the barn here. No surprise then to see that same color palette seeping into the pages here.
