Inspirations taken from the garden

Garden colour inspirations

The request for this project was for colour inspirations from garden flowers. What a delight – my favourite thing is to explore colours that nature gives us along with extraordinary textures. So photographs found of our own garden spaces, the lovely garden at Aberglasney and Charles’s sister Sylvia’s delightfully crammed and colourful garden.

Not exactly garden flowers but the colours that act as a foil for the vibrant or subtle beauty of flowers in unexpected places.
