    meander_michaele 05/06/2013 a sumptuous buffet...each offering more tempting than the last. These pictures show the wonderful attention to detail that is so characteristic of the essence of the yellow tulips planted near the yellow tipped arborvitae looking evergreen. And the yellow themed wall plaque highlighted by the pots of yellow daffodils. Everything works together in harmony.

    I think I like all the great containers they have as much, if not more, than what is in them. So great.

    The slate planter rising is other-worldly fantastic... and yet another birthing in the background...

    I like that wide pot in the third photo down on the right, looks like hammered copper... and those red flowers (zinnia?) look so vibrant.

    This morning my Redspire pear is in full bloom... another further back along the trees I planted along the property line... makes for a more pleasant fence.

    Wow, today's photos are incredible. I love the peachy colored bed with diasca, tulips, and heuchera. That color is amazing with the burgandy foliage and the copper pots. I really learn so much from public gardens. All the containers are so different yet, they all work together beautifully, because they share a common blue/brown color theme. The unexpected touches in the containers (I.e.- the grass? and the yellow twigged dogwood), take those pots to a whole new level. Tractor1- thanks as usual, for your beautiful Catskills garden photo of the day. I think that red flower in the copper pot might be Bellis or English daisy. On a side note, I am finally experiencing the problem everyone else has been talking about. I have not received the last few GPOD's.

    Oooo, those pots are wonderful!! Wish I had a collection to display like that! The color of the pots blend so well with the stonework of the patio, too.

    cwheat000, I am with you on the coral, peachy plantings! It just pops against the stonework. I just planted a coral bark maple with Georgia Peach Heuchera under it last week, guess I need to search for some of those tulips and Diascia Flying Colors Coral to add that extra pop of color.

    Thanks for taking these photos, Michelle! I love when Fine Gardening photos give us ideas that will work in our own gardens!

    GPOD did get sent to me , just late (11:23am). Trashywoman62, it sounds like you are on your way to a killer new planting bed. What a great idea to compliment the beautifully colored branches of a coral bark maple with a Georgia peach heuchera.

    OH, SO LOVELY! I especially love the last photo-with all the peachy/rust flowers, foliage. planters etc. Unusual and dreamy combinations. Hmm, where can I try something like that? Thanks, Michelle.

    JaneEliz-is your picture a Himalayan blue poppy? It is so pretty.
