WPC: Textures


In June, looking down off the deck, I’m treated with this pleasant, textured view of the garden below. It changes over time, but this stage is my favorite of the growing season.

    That’s very calming…..would be nice as a mural photograph (am I explaining that correctly?) on a narrow wall.

  2. Fantastic hosta leaves I must say, not even one hole! The combo of textures is beautiful

  3. Wonderful palette of textures, Eliza!

    Greens in different shades can be so very beautiful. Lovely Eliza!

    This looks very beautiful.

  8. I love the different shapes and textures, very cool looking!

  9. Jim R says:

    So many shapes and shades of green. Always easy to look at.

  10. Looks beautiful ๐Ÿ€๐Ÿƒ

    I agree; when hostas and ferns are at their crispest, the garden is very satisfying. Flowers in July are lovely, but late Spring and early Summer seem so refreshing after Winter…

  12. MK says:

    It’s so very rich looking, with the abundance of green differentiated by the textures. Love this one.

      Thank you very much. How you been doing these days? I hope you’re staying cool. How’s the fruit garden coming along? ๐Ÿ™‚

      • MK says:

        Gosh it’s been so hot. I stay indoors nearly all day, except when we take the dogs for their walk. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ I pray for autumn to arrive early, and for spring to arrive late!
        The garden’s doing well. We’re getting tons of walnuts. (The last 2 summers we had almost none.) The peaches are pretty close to done, and they were delicious. The citrus are less plentiful than previous years. But the persimmon are going gangbusters. Lots & lots of fruit.

        Yay for you, sounds delish!
        BTW, in case you may be interested, I’m predicting an over-the-top fall foliage season this year because of all the rain we’ve had. The trees haven’t looked this good in years. New England peaks (north to south) Sept. 20-Oct. 20. It’d be a good year to visit. ๐Ÿ™‚

    So restful and inviting. Like a comfy green quilt ๐Ÿ’›

  14. Gorgeous. Makes me want to walk along and touch each of the plants. What a wonderful combination.

  15. Christina says:

    As you know, ‘Texture’ is my thing – this is perfect!!

    Mother Nature at her very best!

  17. Kathy Sturr says:

    A wonderful combination of plants Eliza!

  18. “Textures” is a perfect word to describe this.

  19. Laurie Graves says:

    Yes, textures can be pleasing, too. In my front yard—dry, part shade, sun in the afternoon—I have finally gotten it into my little noodle that textures are what I must appreciate. Next year, I plan to revamp one of the beds with that in mind. And then, onward to the other beds.

    WONDERFUL garden textures Eliza! ๐Ÿ™‚

  21. Kris P says:

    It’s a delicious combination, Eliza.

  22. bittster says:

    Nice, and even better that it’s so thick the weeds can’t sneak in!

  23. Denzil says:

    Lovely! Just proves that there is no single color called “green”!
