Don't be fooled. Inside this thin coating of sweetness is a fiery core of total insanity.

Wednesday Vignette

For this week's Wednesday Vignette, I offer some foliage contrasts:


Japanese Painted Fern (possibly 'Ghost') and a Rhodie with indumentum

Dark leaf of Physocarpus against golden Coggygria

Persicaria 'Painter's Palette' and a dark Heuchera

  1. Beautiful foliage contrasts. I' ve noticed it is something you are very good at. There is an art to it.

  2. Drooling over every single one of those images. I thought you said your garden was crispy? Certainly does't look like it here!

    1. Oh, Danger, I wish those were in my garden! They're all from recent garden tours.

  4. I love all 3 combinations but especially the first one with the painted fern. How I wish I could grow that here!

  5. All three photos are great, but I really love the first one. What a gorgeous combo.

  6. I agree - the first image is positively dreamy. The persicaria leaves remind me of the current state of a Canna Pretoria that I almost killed. It came back splotchy instead of stripy!

  7. I've never seen a persicaria that color before, gorgeous! Beautiful contrasting texture and colors!

  8. I don't have a single painted fern. Damn shame. I need to change that.
    The Persicaria looks just like one I got from Grace this year, and I'm head over heels in love with it.

  10. The first one is my favorite--I love the contrasting textures. And I agree with ricki grady above: that image is so cooling on what promises to be another scorcher of a day!

Gardening is a solitary activity. But blogging about it is a social phenomenon! I don't make money from my blog by advertising, or use it to drive customers to a business. If you liked my post, or my writing or photography, or even just one picture or turn of phrase, I'd love to hear from you. That's how I get paid.
