Color in the garden by Henri Matisse & Tara Dillard

One of my favorite blogs is Tara Dillard Garden and Home. I never fail to learn something or to smile, when I read her "tough love" approach to gardening. Henri Matisse (1869-1954) anticipated Tara's use of color on furniture & iron in her garden in his paintings.
