I was watering my garden on Sunday morning. The sun was shining in the cool blue sky. The lavender was alive with blossoms. The heavy buds ripe with fragrance and honey bees drunk on nectar. Art?
In nature I think design is everywhere. It's in the intertwining of branches. Vivid colour against a sandy backdrop.The bright lime green of Durante alongside the blueish grey of lavender leaves. .
It's in the first spring buds of a nectarine tree. A cymbidium orchid growing wild in the garden. The ornamental foliage and yellow flowers of tatsoi. And the white blooms of round peas.
The tatsoi is growing in front of passion fruit. I bet you thought it looked like a dagga plant (haha).
I believe we at Potager, take the beauty of nature and transform it into functional art. Our container planters are made from fragrant cedar or we re-purpose pallets which are often made from old oregon planks, and turn them into lovely planters.
That's exactly what we tried to do at Decorex this year.
