Happy Combinations

Euphorbia and geranium

I find what I am most drawn to in gardens these days is the combination of plants, the colors, the textures, the mix of tiny and big, light and dark. I love the look of a lacy fern sweeping across a ribbed hosta leaf, a chartreuse plant next to dark purple. These plantings in my garden are usually not intentional--they just result from random plantings and placing lots of plants close together. Happily, they usually mingle together and produce a great effect.
