Above, my beloved Graham Thomas, who blooms right near the doorway, sharing its rich, fruity fragrance from June right through September. Paul snuck some pansies into the ground at GT's feet, and I love the way this dark purple exploited an illuminating backdrop.
Below, Graham's shy cousin, Rosa Glauca: Here, I'm enamoured of the blue that underlies both the green and the pink here, such a sophisticated chat between foliage and flowers. . .
What about you? Does your gardening style reflect the rest of your life? Or, if you haven't a garden, do you find style consistencies between your approach to work and, say, to your wardrobe? Or between your livingroom's design and your blog's? Your cooking and your haircare? Okay, perhaps I'm frivolous there, but I'm curious. Also interested to hear if there are some areas in which your style is spectacularly different than in the rest of your life. Pipe up! I'd love to hear your comments.
