Meadows covers every possible surface in the garden with unexpected color. When she uses blue, for example, the color is not just in pansies and cobalt containers. She exuberantly paints it on walls, gates and cement walkways. She scatters blue stones between plantings and pulls in the blue sky as part of the garden composition.
Watch the videos of the garden parties in London and Edinburgh, Scotland and choose which one you'd like to attend. Perhaps you prefer the sedate grandeur of the Buckingham Palace grounds? The earthy elegance of Holyrood House and its skirling pipes?
Do you have a guilty secret in your garden? Is it your side yard? Perhaps the decor there consists of a trash can and a yard waste container. Or, like mine, the prime feature is an air-conditioning unit.
