Blowing in the Breeze

Aahhh, the grasses- a multitude of colors, sizes, textures. And most all with tantalizing motion in the summer breezes. Here's a smattering of favorites….

A little Peace of Mind

It's lovely to return to some of my gardens and get a glimpse of life there after I am long gone. Does it have the earmarks of a place they enjoy, inhabit often? Is it possibly a little ragged here and there but shows some tender care on the whole? Are there chairs and dining that look like they are well used? A nightly glass of wine when the weather allows, a snippet of herbs for dinner plucked from the garden?

I did a surprise drop by a client's as I was in the neighborhood and despite her feeling like she should be cleaning for the cleaning person when I arrived unannounced, I just kind of loved that the garden is clearly a part of her every day life- tweaking to be done, the sounds and the birds to be enjoyed. A little peace of mind to be found there...
