Garden Vignettes

When water trickles away instead of reaching the plants; and the pea straw slips down the slope and the cross-wind snaps yet another flower stalk and the clay is impossible to dig and my body hurts from the exertion of lugging wooden sleepers up steep steps and setting up a garden feels so hard; it’s time to visit some established gardens.

And capture vignettes of inspiration to boost my design palette and teach me more about:

Colour combinations

Shape and form

Visual texture

And then I pop my gardening gear back on and dare to go back to my hill in progress.

It is not the mountain we conquer but ourselves

– Sir Edmund Hilary
