You Must Create Complexity Into Simplicity

Only the tree was here when we began. No gravel road, walled garden, bushes, gate.


How do you create complexity into simplicity?  Expose yourself to the best gardens, burn their DNA into your brain cells.


Christopher Lloyd's Great Dixter, below, inspired the topiaries in Tara Turf, above.


 Soon we can choose shapes.  Each yew will be allowed to speak.

My reservoir is deep, understanding Themistocles, "I cannot fiddle, but I can make a great state from a little city."

Garden & Be Well,     XO Tara

Have had the good fortune of meeting Christopher Lloyd in USA, we had lunch and toured several gardens. Met him again in his garden, Great Dixter.  Have no books by Lloyd?  You are not a serious gardener, yet.

Same garden as previous several posts.
