I went out to Long Island this weekend to start the spring cleaning in my garden in Montauk. Nothing like hard labor to make a weekend go fast! Fertilizing, cleaning the beds, raking, trimming, sweating…it revitalizes me to touch the ground again and I look forward to seeing the bulbs popping through the ground. I always try to visualize the garden in bloom – it gives me a boost. I planted my garden all white, except for one big bed that has mixed colors, going from purples to yellows to pink. It’s always a thrill to see what survived the winter.
I’ve drawn inspiration for many rooms from the colors in my garden. I’m always inspired by the different tones of flowers and leaves. Do any of you garden? If you do, is there a particular pattern of color that you have in your garden? I’m thinking of starting a new bed, so if you have any ideas, let me know. After all, how different is doing a room from doing a garden?
