A couple of weeks ago I enjoyed a leisurely morning walk at Duke Gardens.
That day there were many beautiful flowers in bloom, both annuals and perennials, but flowers are only part of what makes that garden so interesting and memorable. There I found stunning foliage combinations that seemed worth remembering in detail. As a follow-up to yesterday’s Garden Bloggers Foliage Day, I selected a group of images from my visit to Duke Gardens that day that highlights some attractive foliage in that garden.
Others scenes from that Duke Garden walk were posted in Morning Walk At Duke Gardens and Color And Texture — Inspirations.
Lovely , lovely foliage, beautiful textures, it really is painting a picture with plants.
I agree Pauline and plants provide such a rich palette.
I am fast becoming a foliage fan! These are wonderful photos you took, and are giving me lots of ideas! I really love the third photo. I have an area of very dry ground that needs a revamp… such a lovely post! Thank you for the inspiration!
Glad you found inspiration here today. This garden is a wealth of ideas–I should visit there more often. The third picture is of a view just off the parking lot, so when we first arrived I was immediately busy taking pictures.
What beautiful photographs, they really do demonstrate that foliage alone can create a truly wonderful garden.
Love the fern and sage. Your photos are wonderful. I’ll have to look at the foliage more carefully from now on.
Thanks. Only recently have I begun to notice how interesting foliage is.
