Before & After: A Small Seattle Garden Grows to New Heights

I found this sweet little Seattle garden a few weeks ago over on the beautiful Northwest Botanicals website while combing the internet for some front yard landscaping ideas. It’s a small corner garden that started out with some scraggly plants slung over a bed of dirt and gravel, and it has evolved into a corner that’s quite charming. Of course, I now that I found this one I want my very own version, but I don’t think that will be happening any time soon.

Texture in the Garden

I happened across this image on Flickr today  –  It struck me as so pretty.  As I figured out what I love about it, I came to the conclusion that it is all the textures.   It re-opened my eyes to the sensory contrast that can be created with simple plants, pots and walls.  Remarkable. image by…
