Every Thursday, we like to post a picture of something we've found online that inspires us to do something similar at the farm.  
Sort of our own blog bulletin board so that we can eventually look back and, hopefully anyway, recreate it...enjoy!

We like looking online for color combinations that look nice.  There is something really pretty about a purple, yellow and white combination like above.  They really compliment each other. Not sure what these flowers are but we can imaging this is wonderful in person.

Anyone have any other wonderful color combinations in landscaping?

Be inspired!


  1. Beautiful. That real feeling of that rustic farm look.
    Not sure on names of the flowers but taking a wild guess.
    tall yellow, dark center - Black-Eyed Susan
    yellow flowers I believe are Dahlberg daisies
    The white - Butterfly Bush
    The purple I believe is some sort of DIANTHUS

    1. I came up with Black-Eyed Susan, Coreopsis , Tall Phlox & Butterfly Bush :D

  2. Those flowers are lovely. The only thing that grows in my backyard is my one and only rose bush. At least the roses bloom frequently throughout the year.


  3. The yellow-white-purple colors look so pretty together. My mom always said that white really brings out the other colors.

  4. This is a beautiful combination . . . inspired indeed!

    The yellow flowers with black heads are Black-Eyed Susan
    Way in the back about center are yellow Tiger Lillies
    Small yellow flowers are Threadleaf Coreopsis (also known as tickseed)
    Silver plant up front is artemesia
    Purple garden phlox
    White butterfly bush
    Looks like there's some creeping thyme too falling down over the rocks.

    Can't wait to see your version! Happy Gardening!

  5. one of the most striking combinations I have seen was orange calendula's, aka pot marigold, grown with felicia amelloides, both very easy to grow. They were lining a gravel path and spilling over the edges, so pretty.
