Quest for Color: Going Beyond the Bloom
Color brings a garden to life. Whether it’s serene green, or eye-popping reds and yellows, the many hues of flower and foliage delight the eye and engage the mind. And for those who believe they can’t have too much of a good thing, “Quest for Color”, a PowerPoint presentation detailing my search for unconventional ways to use color in the garden. It starts where flowers leave off, and shows how colorful ornaments, foliage, furniture and treillage can be used to brighten the garden all season long. Using examples drawn from nature, from my Farmington, CT garden and from some of the most creative, color-conscious gardens in the Northeast, I'll show how trowel and paintbrush can be used to create bold, bright color schemes or subtly harmonious compositions.
