Winter Solstice – Short Day, Short Post #3

I finally finished my outside front porch holiday garden containers. They are not perfect, but I am happy with them…and I have decided that while I am already looking forward to next year’s design, I actually really like orange and red together for Christmas.  (and the dash of dark purple seems to spice it up too).

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.

    I think you’ve got a serious case of class! Your floral decorations are beautiful.

    I love the house colors. Love the zinc planters and you did a great job tying in all the colors with the plantings in the containers. Very nice.
