Botany hall at Phipps Conservatory in Pittsburgh, PA is off to the side from all of the newer construction, but still a great place to catch your garden-lovers breath.
For anyone who is still deliberating about which annuals to plant this year, this yellow and purple combination is worth thinking about. I love how it echoes the yellow and purples from the perennial plants planted down the path to the fountain. They let the yellow-edge yucca and Russian sage set the color scheme for this summer planting. Wonderful idea for tying it all together.

With "Color for the weekend," I will be delving into the tremendous store of old photos I have from before my writing days to share with you all. Hopefully they will be an inspiring end to your week!
