Commercial, mostly interiors shop, March, below, better at garden design than most garden centers.

Not a lot here, excepting there is a lot. Each layer, perfect.

Color, flow, plants, staging, texture, contrast, plants, still life, heights, focal points, axis, seasonal, lighting, vanishing threshold, multi-functional, over-dose-theme, easy maintenance.

At this phase, below, personally. Have purchased a harvest table made from wood of a century old tobacco barn. What's the phase? Choosing chairs. Looking at galvanized metal. Time is a luxury, the table won't fit in my van, Beloved's trucks are at a jobsite for another few weeks. Need 10 chairs. Don't want all of them to match, perhaps they will. That is the fun of the hunt.

Color trinity, above, great for my zone, tail end of Piedmont swallowed by Coastal Plain, in depths of summer's miseries heat-humidity-bugs, gives the illusion of 'cool' viewed from interiors.

Ironically, my horticulture degree included zero about this zone. Zero

Go into the typical box store garden center, and be greeted by zillions of colorful greenhouse annuals, chemicals to annihilate bees-butterflies-man, finish off with fertilizers to poison groundwater, and kill earthworms and mycorrhizal fungi in the soil.

With zero irony the same garden centers sell annual flowers to attract butterflies, planted in soil with systemic insecticides, all with banner marketing. Aka, killing the same butterflies you're trying to attract.

Made a mistake at the seed store early this month, bought a small bag of 'organic' fertilizer for our lone tomato plant. Reading the label at home, after opening, it's N-P-K, ugh, kills earthworms/fungi. At least the tomato is in a pot.
