As we approach the fourth of July here in the US with all the patriotic colors and symbols that accompany it I began thinking about how these are translated into gardens. Stars, stripes, plus the colors of red, white and blue can fill a garden with tons of celebration. As I researched these items I was drawn more and more to the idea of just stripes in the garden. Focusing on stripes allows us to celebrate a clean and simple pattern year-round.
Below are some of my favorite garden stripe images. You can find a larger collection on my Pinterest Board. Has your garden earned it’s stripes?
