Colours are Warm and Cozy! October 03 2010, 0 Comments

Well it’s officially Fall!

I love this time of year, not too happy with what follows! If we could have Spring, Summer and Fall only as the seasons, I would be happy!

The colours are warm and cozy, the cool crisp mornings, warm days, great for family outings, and of course apple and pumpkin pies.

Fall decorating can be fun and affordable and the outdoors are a wonderful inspiration.

No guess-work with the colours, they’re already done, just pick up a few leaves – they’ll perk up any setting.

 A few gourds and pumpkins in a basket or on your mantle.

Some ornamental cabbage in the garden or outdoor container.

This is a family of plants that are native to Europe and Asia and have been developed as ornamentals.

The ornamental Kales are usually the frilly ones and cabbages have solid edges. This a perfect plant for late season color. They only improve with the frost and cold weather.

See ya next time!

Cool Bamboo! September 10 2010, 0 Comments

Welcome to the new Scenes Around Town section.

I’ll be looking out for unique and different styles of designed landscapes, gardens, buildings, etc. and then posting photos of them here in my Blog.

To kick-start this section, I came across this very different fence along Brock Street (Kingston) and took a quick shot.

A very nicely done Bamboo Fence!

Join in with this fun project by sending along a photo of your design work or something you saw around Kingston!
