Cottage Garden Plant Combination
You know you really do have to take the bull by the horns (or is that shooting the bull?) and go bold or go home every now and then.
This dwarf hollyhock (the purple "thing" - I can't tell you its name or I'd have to kill you) is paired up (quite accidentally) with a yellow glad.
Now the glad came in a mix and there were only 2 yellow (the majority were white - so much for a mix)
The Hollyhock is a new introduction I have on trial - and I knew it was purple - I just didn't know it was that bright! purple.
So when the hollyhock met the glad last week, I knew I had to take a picture.
And that's how plant combinations sometimes happen in the cottage garden design - serendipity or as my grandfather would have said - "by chance or by gawd".
Both for good and for bad and I wouldn't have it any other way.
