My Garden is Like a Living Quilt to me

Colours, Shape, Texture, Balance are just as important in my garden as they are in my art work. As I went out to take the clothes off the line this afternoon I couldn't help but notice the glossy leaves of the tractor leaf ligularia against the velvety soft leaves of the floss flower and the spiky leaves of the cabbage tee. Even the autumn leaves of the errant grape vine seemed to be adding to this vintage. And in the front the small leaves of an azalea; to the right the leaves of the purple maple not yet fallen but adding to the mix. Maybe it was the way the sun was catching them all but i found this a very rewarding gift from my gardening efforts
