Although this could very well be a picture of me finding a new treasure at a favorite nursery, it's actually an illustration by David Catrow for a children's book called Plantzilla.

Wednesday Vignette

Each Wednesday, Anna at Flutter and Hum hosts Wednesday Vignette.  Hop on over to her blog to see what's caught the eye of Anna and other bloggers participating today.

This great combination was seen in Irene Scheck's Bellevue garden.

Burgundy and gold are wolderful color partners and the foliage contrasts are pretty swell too!

  1. Really beautiful, especially with the weathered wood in there. I was a little disappointed that this combo was not from your own garden Peter. Get to work! ;)

    1. My garden is a mess right now as usual. Every time I go out to try and get some of the pot ghetto into the ground, only one or two things get planted before I discover some sort of project that should be done first like pruning, cutting down a shrub that keeps coming back despite being cut to the ground every year, snapping off another dozen or so bamboo culms that are invading my beds, etc. A downside of the greenhouse - watering every day in warm weather. A few more full days of working outside and everything should be planted and I can go back to watering, pulling English Ivy,and digging bamboo runners!

  3. Perfect, Peter! I have a rescued Filipendula sitting in a pot waiting for a home. I just might have to follow suit - this is beautiful! Thanks for the inspiration!

  5. Great shot! And a perfect plant combo. Even the bright sunlight that day didn't ruin the shot, but added to it.

    1. Thanks! The sun does make photographing gardens difficult but here it worked.

  6. A neighbor gave me a piece of this wonderful heuchera when she divided hers. I'm not sure which variety it is but it's beautiful and very glossy. Now I just need to find something chartreuse to finish the 'look'. Oh, and the lumber too.

    1. Maybe a nice road trip to the coast to find a nice piece of driftwood is in order.

  7. Burgundy and gold/chartreuse are one of my favorite foliage combinations, Heucheras are great for that.

  11. I try to repeat burgundy and chartreuse as much as possible throughout my garden. They make each other pop.
