Shoes & Garden 'read' modern.
"..that when ages grow to civility and elegancy, men come to build stately sooner than to garden finely, as if gardening were the greater perfection." Lord Bacon, written centuries ago.
Discovering this Dutch Garden Design, above, I was excited to discovered who designed it. A new talent? Who could this be? Simple, elegant, functional.
Instead, centuries old. So modern, it feels like a conversation, no, a new friend and discussion about Garden Design.
Why is it a new gardener is convinced they will recreate the wheel of Garden Design? That would be me, decades ago. Now? Blessed to have left that persona in the rubbish heap. More, with a knowing smile, not persona, ego. Counterintuitively, historic Garden Design is about becoming more 'you'. A proscenium for your life.
Garden & Be Well, XO T
