YELLOW AND GREEN, INSPIRATION THURSDAY

Flowers on a fence line, image via Pinterest
Well, you know we are scouring online resources to get ideas for flowers to buy to scatter around the farm.  Usually the photos I find that we like best are an explosion of various colors; reds, pinks, purples, yellows, whites, etc.  This however is colorful for quite the opposite reason.  The color palette is about the same across the photo; yellows and varying shades of green but still, this is just so pretty in its own right.  Different textures, heights, etc and so pretty.  Maybe it is for just that, its simplicity.

Be inspired!

P.S. Blogger acting up for some reason, so this post is short, but please do still leave comments.  Will hopefully catch up on them tonight.

Pretty! Looks like Asiatic Lily (past bloom), Black-eyed Susan and a Butterfly Bush. Simply & prolific. Very nice:)

Linda; right on, on the name of the plants here. Bees as well as butterflies love my butterfly bushes
I also love the looks of the whole layout; especially the rustic looking fence. Wonderful inspiration

A simple pallette is often very, very effective.
In years gone by we had a 'white garden'. Only white blooming flowers. Green or silver foliage. It was dramatic and beautiful.

This kind of color scheme brings a sense of calm and peace. With some white mixed in, it would also be beautiful at night.

Wow! I love the fence and although I tend to go for more color there is something very calming about this! Most of our flowers are in the red and purple range to attract humming birds (we have 5 feeders but I'm sure more will be added!). My mom also decided to help the monarchs but planting a few milkweeds. In our back yard I added some flowers that are supposed to help attract bees to help pollinate. Now I'm wondering where I can get a section of fence and do something like this. This is why Pinterest is such a dangerous, dangerous playground! :)

Thanks!! And yes, that fence is pretty cool. I"m working on something with potential like this.

Oooh, I bet white was gorgeous. I like the idea of simple palettes of color too.

You know, looking at the pic, that might be what drew me to it in the first place, it is kind of calm and peaceful huh?

Hi! Oh yes, pinterest can be very dangerous, ha. Yellow and simple green like this is so peaceful for some reason. This would be easy to do, I hope you get to do it. Keep us posted!!

And by the way, helping hummers, monarchs and bees is a wonderful thing, keep it up!
