Peeking through the framework of fig leaves, Mexican feather grass creates a hazy scrim with bold, upright leaves poking through (not sure what those leaves are). This magical combination is just a sneak peek at Bob Hyland’s garden. I will expand on that later in the week, so stay tuned. Meanwhile, Anna (Flutter and Hum) has a weekly vignette for you and a gateway to others. Dip into her astute design sense and I know you will want to return on a weekly basis.
Oh, you got to see Bob Hyland’s garden? I’m envious, but look forward to your report! 🙂
But everyone is envious of YOU with the trip you are taking. I’ll try to hit the highlights and there’s always next year.
Great shot, Ricki! Really nice framing. Those dark leaves coming up through the Mexican feather grass might be Eucomis, pineapple lily. I haven’t made it down to Portland on the weekend to see any gardens yet. I need to fix that.
I was thinking that or phormium. You should watch for this garden to come up again. It’s a must-see.
Like it! love the combination of textures.
This garden had textures glore.
Great combination! The bold and the beautiful!
My thanks, kind sir.
That is a nice photograph. You have a good eye for composition. The rest of this garden must be amazing too?
I’m out of superlatives, but will let you see for yourself tomorrow.
This vignette is inviting and mysterious at the same time. I will look forward to your fuller coverage of the garden!
I’ve just been going through my photos and trying to pare them down to a number that will not be too daunting. My shutter was clicking constantly.
The Mexican Feather Grass looks really magical.
I’ve never been drawn to it before, but it just shows how using a plant well can make all the difference.
Isn’t it? I love the aura of mystery.
