Daffodils of Spring

One of the best things about spring are the rows of beautiful flowers. One such example is a pathway leading from a parking lot to a trio of buildings. Both sides of the walkway contain daffodils in various hues. It’s very unique to see various colors of daffodils planted in no particular order. Too often we tend to have our gardens full of organized, color-coded flowers, despite that scheme being the complete opposite of nature. By randomly planting various colors of the same plant, you can create a look that manages to be both uniform and eye-catching. This way, you can take a cue from nature and create a colorful garden that’s uniquely you.

Metal-Clad Monolith

As seen above, it was a series of interconnected blocks in various shapes and sizes. I love the simple, yet unique, look of this piece. Want something similar for your own outdoor space? Start small by buying pieces at your local garden center, installing a uniquely shaped pergola, or creating your own by using stone, wood, or brick. Whether you buy or create your own, you can easily bring beautiful art into your outdoor space!
