THE ART OF EMBELLISHMENT IN THE ITALIANATE GARDEN


Gardens, like houses, are often improved with a touch of the unusual.


When a bit of thought improves the vista.


However, it requires gifted talent in the eye of the designer.


As one philosopher said "I cannot give eyes to those who can't see".


And this perfect example of the Italianate garden shows how it's all in the detail.


Turning the ordinary into the extraordinary.


Requiring not only creativity but courage.


To not be deterred by detractors.


Sir Roy Strong - our lives richer for their gift of vision.

METAMORPHOSIS OF A FLOWER


While idly strolling through a meadow, your mind on other things


It is all too easy to overlook this humble stalk 


But this bashful and unassuming pompom is using all its energy


To get your attention


The beautiful metamorphosis of a wild flower
