These two were beautifully paired this afternoon.
Baptisia and Tiger Eye Sumac just waking up, together.
I had been working on that north side for several hours. When you finally have time to do what you love and in turns out to be ninety degrees, you simply adjust where you “play”. I finally sat for a moment to admire my work and quickly became infatuated with this sliver. This thin stream of sunshine that somehow found its way around the house as the sun began to set.
This theme of the sliver has dominated my life for several days now. Blogs, Bible reading, stories all discussing sight…how we see only a small piece of it all.
I still do not understand how this sliver of light appeared – there.
Thankfully I got to see.
The side of the house that no one sees. I remember designing this, excited about the color combination. It has been years and I finally documented it…Blue Fescue, deep red Peony, Purple Sand cherry and the green of boxwood….followed up in the fall by deep red Anemone to finish out the season. Simple. Low-maintenance. Happy.
