Tree Rings, the sculpture I created to honour a maple tree at my garden Glen Villa, is featured in Garden Design Magazine’s on-line newsletter.
I’m really pleased. Why wouldn’t I be? The article is a wow!
Each issue has pieces that capture my attention. Le Jardin Plume, one of my favourite French gardens, was featured in an issue last fall. Drought-proof gardens featured in another issue and while a shortage of water is not an issue for me at Glen Villa — we have plenty of rain in the summer months — as a responsible, ecologically-minded gardener I know that the careless use of water is a bad idea, wherever you live.
There’s more on this topic in the current on-line edition. In an excerpt from her new book The Water-Saving Garden Pam Penick writes about creating the illusion of water by using plants. Sounds interesting, doesn’t it?
So, thank you Garden Design, for great articles. And thank you for such a great piece about Tree Rings.
