Power Of Silhouette: Audrey Hepburn

Perusing quickly I immediately knew this silhouette, below.
Impact was immense.  Silhouettes are a huge Landscape Design tool.  Trees, buildings, shrubs, & etc.  A fresh reminder.
And it's chiaroscuro too, my favorite time, the gloaming.
Use silhouettes as a tool in your landscape.  Love what a mature crape myrtle can do with many roof lines.  Perhaps the armillary sundial on plinth?  Patch of rectangular lawn at a huge palladian window.  Pair of round boxwood at a doorway.  You get it.  Constrast the forms.
Garden & Be Well,            XO Tara

Contrast...the spice of life. Or sometimes...the causer of grief if not the right contrast?

Going out to my garden now to see what's going on silhouette-style.

I was just looking at ordering Audrey's Garden's Of The World such a gardening mood! She loved and appreciated gardens so much, and what's so wonderful about this image is that she became a perfect silhouette in this garden...we should al have an Audrey in the garden!

You just "think" we get it! You teach us constantly!

Brilliant! (I honestly think that Audrey Hepburn visiting her plants and talking to them.......would be more than any fertilizer!)

A magnificent human being who loved plants, animals, and people (not in that order)!
