Serving up Expression

With Memorial weekend just days away, seizing the opportunity of this spring/summer shoulder season to flaunt color in our exterior spaces adds such great fun to the garden experience. Today, let’s go beyond the color arrangement with your plant materials. This is your chance to tie all your outside elements together, from the flecks of color in your terrace to your patio furniture and urns. Throw in these little extras and any lack of color in your plantings won’t be noticeable to your guests. Henri Matisse, the French painter, known for his use of colors pointed out, “the chief function of color should be to serve expression.” So what colors are on your Memorial Day menu? This is the time of year to pull out all the stops for outside entertaining. Add a few extra accessories or gadgets with bright, bold colors that serve expression and your guests will be sure to remember. It’s your outdoor canvas so have fun!  

P.S. See how yesterday’s Flame Azalea image compliment these colorful plates! Just in case you missed yesterday's post.
