Spring Planters


 Sorry, I’ve been away from home for a few days, but now I’m back! On my way home I saw some very chic spring planters.  They are a great example of good design for color, texture and size proportion.  These three design elements always deserve attention.  Purple and yellow are across from each other on the color where which make them strict complementary colors. 
 Other examples are red and green
And blue and orange
Ralph Lauren
The yellow Daffodils carry through from the Forsythia in the background.  The metallic finished planters are a perfect balance to the stone driveway and bring out the cool tones of the purple pansies. The Scotch broom has fabulous texture and I wouldn’t be surprised if it stays in these planters for at least the next planting. The height of the plantings are about equal to the height of the planter which is a very good proportion, especially when used at the end of a driveway like this.  What a fabulous design worth taking note of!
