Shades of Green
This garden bed next to the front door in SJC was once a flat lawn butting up against the gold stucco of the house. One of the first things I thought I would do when we moved in five years ago was to change the paint color of the house. As often happens, it turned out there were many other priorities that trumped the house color and in the meantime it has grown on me. That and I have covered it up and softened it with foliage like you see here. There must be a dozen different shades of green here, many textures and shapes, along with a number of flowering plants that don't show up very well in this picture. Very cool on a hot summer day.
