Inspired by jardinsurlaseine’s garden of textures in Paris

Muhlenbeckia and boxwood and grass by jardinsurlasiene garden inspiration

There is that moment with a single picture on instagram, where suddenly you must go find the account of the person who posted.  As it loads, you hope that every other picture is as good as that first one that caught your eye.  And the joy, when you’ve stumbled on a real treasure.

The boxwood and the muhlenbeckia (two of of my favorites) were dancing with he wispy grass (not sure the var) and the purple drumsticks (again, I’d love to know the actual plant name) and with fingers crossed, I hoped to find more.

Jardin Sur La Seine’s instagram is an homage to contemporary garden design and specifically one inspiring urban garden in Paris.  Follow it to enjoy a chic garden of grasses, floppy white hydrangeas, layers of green, sleek decking, and gravel paths that melt into soft planting.

I can’t help but marvel at the discipline it takes to maintain an almost all white garden.  The restraint required feels akin to walking down the Rue du Bac, and going home with only a simple croissant (but the best croissant you’ve ever laid lips on).  The French are just so good at that type thing!

p.s. In addition to the purple alliums, I am not sure of the queen annes lace-like white flowers that are trailing down the left side of the image with the red chairs.  If you know what they are I’d love to hear your ideas.

    Beautiful post! The drumsticks are Allium sphaerocephalon. I believe the lacy flowers are Myrrhis odorata (sweet cicely) – the leaves and stems look correct, although having it fill in on a hillside is different – and “Oh! How I wish I would have thought of that!”

    The white flower looks like chervil to me.
