A Lovely Combination
Love and marriage, father's day gifts....they go together just like a horse and carriage, or in this case like pink and blue. A fortuitous combination came along in the front foundation border-pinks and blues. Catmint and 'May Night' salvia provide the blues whereas a peony and 'Rolly's Favorite' silene make up the pinks.
This is a soft orchids color combination that works well just about anywhere. Right now in the garden it seems to be the mode of operation-with a few newly blooming lilies kicking in some yellows and oranges.
The fine texture of the catmint combined with the rougher texture of the salvia and strong foliage of the peony and silene make for a pleasing flower and foliage combination even without the soft pinks and blues....
in the garden....
What are some of your favorite color combinations?
