Peach Goes With Everything

My quest to harmonize the colors in my butterfly garden was given a surprising boost when the latest issue of Fine Gardening arrived.
Susan Morrison wrote a wonderful article entitled
Peach Goes With Everything.
 Exactly the color challenge I've been working with 
since starting my planting with
Apricot Drift roses!

There's nothing like making a "picture quilt" to get a feel for how things are working together. 
Above are some of my flowers in bloom.
(Not everything is represented - there are more lavenders in the mix).
Ms. Morrison's article is full of great suggestions and examples if you are working with peach or apricot as a harmonizing color. I love the combination of colors in these table bouquets.

Just for fun, here are a few photos I collected of interior rooms pulled together by peachy tones.
The concept is the same whether using fabrics or flowers.
It really can be a most useful color!
