Painting with Flowers


My neighbor Anne says, “Gardeners are artists that use the soil for their canvas and flowers and plants for their paints.”  I agree with Anne.  I enjoy walking through neighborhoods and see beautiful living art this time of year.  What a vibrant combination of plants above and a muted color palate with a sprinkling of red below!


Even a small area can pop with color with plants in pots.



Maryland’s Black-eyed Susan are at their peak.  Yellow and green with black-eyed spots.


You can’t go wrong mixing colors – nature has created these colors.

I hope I’ve inspired you become an artist and to plant some flowering plants next year.  The butterflies and bees will be thankful too.

Keep creating,
