All the photos in today's post are from my "Gardens that Inspire" Pinterest board.  When I post photos there I comment on why I find them interesting and often how they will influence my own gardens. If you enjoy this blog or this post you should find it an interesting browse.
This is exactly the pattern I want to plant some shorter orange daffodils in a see of purple grape hyacinth
Given I am not a fan of pink you may be wondering the reason for this shot.

I do not want grass like this, but the swirl is the exact pattern I have been picturing for the river of daffodils I want running through muscari in my new lasagna garden in the front yard.

No matter how stunning this is,
Muscari River. Google it and you will be surprised how many different variations exist.  All gorgeous.
I want to try something different.

I picture having my garden full of muscari and having the daffodil run up the middle as the 'river'.
In a swirl pattern.

Can you see the two ideas coming together?

Picture brown as muscari / green as daffodils

The daffodil will need to be shorter, luckily there are many kinds to choose from.  I would prefer short and orange but the closest I have seen so far is yellow with an orange cup, like Jetfire I have planted in the back yard.  

Only 8 more months until I can plant them!
