Those who know me well ~
know I'm NOT an 0ut ~ of ~ doors person!
However, I do love a beautiful lawn and garden. . .
But ~ once I learned that the garden could contain rooms ~
I began to orchestrate a subtle make ~over On Crooked Creek!
Much like interior decorating ~
I began with a three color palette.
To keep order and bring tranquility to our urban setting,
I chose. . .
creamy ivory. . .
buttery yellow. . .
and variations of purple hues. . .
against the numerous shades of greens that encompass the lawn On Crooked Creek!
The newest addition, On Crooked Creek,
now in its second year ~
is the Fairy Garden!
Grown from seed, purple hued Saliva serves as backdrop.
Surviving last years drought ~
I could NOT contain my JOY as it began to reach its mature height and delicate, petite purple blossoms burst open!
Giving continual movement ~
a clump of Tiger grass sways
in the ever blowing winds on the Prairie.
As in home decor ~
a pop of color was added in the form of rose variegated Coleus!
A softer, more subtle, shade of rose is found in the Calla Lily
that balances the other side of the Fairy Garden!
as the blooms begins to make their appearance each season!
I adore the feminine,
tranquil appearance of this bloom in its full leaf!
Such a vision of beauty and grace for the garden!
I was truly smitten by the beauty and grace
of this Garden Fairy
during an early trip in the Spring
to our local Lowe's Garden Center.
Certainly appearing at bay ~
as she lingers in her very own natural surroundings ~
the Fairy Garden On Crooked Creek!
This is her usual tease ~
as I view her from our deck each morning!
Positioned to hide her face ~
as one approaches her from any angle in the garden. . .
and yet ~
it is as if she summons me to draw near!
Late afternoon ~
and evening shadows summons me to the indoors
On Crooked Creek!
another day ~
Season by Season. . .trial and error. . . failure or success ~
we'll explore another room in the gardens ~
On Crooked Creek.
Until next time. . .
On Crooked Creek is joining The Tablescaper for Seasonal Sundays! This is my first time to join after her kind invitation! Be sure to drop by and enjoy the Seasons inspirations!
