Daily Garden: Lea’s New Zealand Garden with A View

The natural backdrop to Lea’s New Zealand front garden is extraordinary.   The drifts of color in the planting mimic the drifts of land and the rolling hills perfectly.  When you are planning a garden, pay close attention  to what lies beyond the boundaries and decide if you want to highlight it or hide it….in this case Lea highlighted it and I think she did a beautiful job. Don’t you?

    That is *gorgeous*. She’s done a marvelous job of framing that view with a jewel-like garden. And, of course, any garden is better with cats in it!

    I wonder- is that thyme along the walk, or creeping phlox? It’s lovely.

    Beautiful. I see a busy area of crimson, with pink and white, contrasted with a smooth swath of lavender color. Unusual color combination, but the smooth peace of the lavender really echoes the hills, as you say, and makes it work. And the busy part wakes it up. Excellent composition, may it bloom forever!
