I was struck this morning when I opened up the latest email from Avant Gardens. These plants were part of the mix that they are offering in early season sales and my mind immediately thought of dusty old pictures of Victorians in the their gardens. Yes I know that back in the day, they didn’t live in a sepia colored world (duh, but wouldn’t that be interesting for a while?) and that old pictures just look like that, but wouldn’t it be fun to make a garden full of plants that we could pretend like we all old fashioned in?
