Exuberant Cottage Garden

On the deck overlooking the front garden, annuals, vines, and herbs in containers of varying heights and sizes offer a lush display of season-long color. Although Jon describes his approach as unplanned, his intuitive sense of color, texture, and proportion produces harmonious combinations and striking contrasts. Whether it’s cabbages and caladiums or basil and impatiens, his seemingly random groupings celebrate the aesthetic potential of everything that grows in a profusion of happy chances.
