Garden Design

As Spring approaches we begin to look to the garden. Our garden is basically a ‘green garden” so it is not that hard to plant new accent colors. I happen to like roses and we have set an area for a rose garden. I use my Sunbrella collection throughout the garden My wide stripe “Upland” is now 15 years old and loves the intense California sun.

The Season of Roses

The Season of Roses

Now that the garden is giving us such beautiful roses, we like pick “one at a time” and showcase the beauty of each variety; no need to group them in big bouguets.

Roses At Christmas!

Roses At Christmas!

Yes, living in California we still have roses blooming at Christmas, albeit the last of the season but the colors of deep pink and red add a festive touch to any corner of the room. A nice accent to have during the season.

Fall Leaves Bouquet

I like to bring Fall into our home in California. Preserved leaves, hydrangea and twigs from the garden. I will add evergreen as we get closer to Christmas. Nice natural decorations for the Holiday Season

Garden Color

I like a “touch” of color in our garden. The garden is basically green but I like to place geraniums, impatiens and roses to give a “pop” of color. Most of these flowers are in pots and I do change and rotate depending on the season.

Geraniums in bright pink are put in strategic places such as the entry.

I also like to use my Sunbrella fabrics to add color. We contantly change pillows and table covers.

The rose garden blooms all summer in shades of red and pink.

Hydrangeas also bring a wonderful pop of color but they are not as hardy.
