We featured Jan Meissner’s Avon, Ohio, garden last spring (here, here, & here). She’s back again this year with this selection of photos that are having her longing for spring (we know how she feels, right?).
Jan says of the first photo, “I thought you might like this blue/black/pink combo. Black mondo grass (Ophiopogon planiscapus ‘Nigrescens’, USDA Hardiness Zones 6-11) is so slow to sprout new leaves here in zone 6a, but just about the time I’m ready to replace it, it redeems itself.”
Jan included a few more shots from around her garden, but had this to say about the gorgeous chartreuse chair: “While I was in my color combo mood last year, I painted a $12 chair in a bright green to match hostas ‘Spritzer’ and ‘Guacamole’, and the variegated Hakone grass (Hakonechloa macra ‘Aureola’, Zones 5-9). The side of my house is so shady–these hot pops of green really liven things up. Even the newly emerging cicada coordinates.”
Thanks, Jan, for bringing us back to your garden again!
