Report From An Opinionated Gardener – July 2

Perhaps I should say we did it. Or my husband did it. I merely had the vision and picked the colors…he made and painted the shutters and window boxes. We both agree that the shed looks better.

When I speak I frequently make the point that New Englanders are afraid of color. We are often reluctant to be bold with color on our buildings, even though bright hues usually make us happy.

We’re approaching Independence Day, so maybe it’s fitting to promote the freedom of color choices. Grab a paint brush and do it.

Once the plants in the window box fill out this scene will be even more colorful!
