Gardens of Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild


One of the reasons for visiting the Rothschild gardens is to copy some of the ideas..Take this flower bed, for example, the cool white of the Trachelospermum is a perfect foil for the bright impatiens and that pot is perfectly positioned.
And I have a cool, shady spot where this would work beautifully. Now all I need to find is someone with muscles who'll dig my dry, stony soil for me.

Another great photo. Per your last post: I need specs for close up viewing. Who knew it was a roof!

That's wonderful; I should do it in my garden, too.

And don't forget to water your (future) impatiens, they need it!
