We are fortunate in South Carolina that we can experience all four seasons. Each season brings a variety of colors from the smallest flowers on the ground to the colors of the trees or tall plants.
My design highlights the four seasons, each depicted on one of the four sides. Summer shines brightly with a variety of zinnias and sunflowers. Fall has pumpkins and falling maple leaves. Winter, not to be outdone, has holly bushes, pansies, and an occasional emerging crocus. Spring is ushered in with daffodils and dogwood trees. In addition, there is an insect or bird representing each season. Fittingly, the name of the sailboat is 4 Seasons.
