Actually not as intense a blue as I remember from some I’ve grown in the past, soil or seed? (I think perhaps the blue got better as the flower matured over the day) Nevertheless a lovely thing. I enjoy reading Trad’s Diary, one of his recent posts is on the theme of blue flowers … Trad’s Diary
As I’ve followed more boards on Pinterest so I’m getting more invitation emails. It’s interesting across a number of boards some of the same images pop up regularly, the pinners come from different countries but the appeal of certain images/gardens spans certainly Europe and the US. I know the repinning business is part of the point of Pinterest but.
- This one a garden in Toledo has popped up a few times
- Another one that appears regularly is Jones Road, Adam Woodruff + Associates, lots of pins for this garden project in Illinois.
- Jinny Blom’s 2007 Chelsea Flower Show iris/grass combo
- A garden in Nantucket Piet Oudolf
Designers like Piet Oudolf andTom Stuart Smith seem to dominate with a sprinkling of Dan Pearson, Oehme van Sweden and Sarah Price. Grasses are everywhere in many of the planting combos especially as the provider of a good background for feature plants although formal hedging and box also make a strong showing.
