Speed walking 5miles, 3-5x's/week, at Stone Mountain, GA, feeds my muse. Doing my best thinking while sweating.
Being in nature to feed the left brain/right brain thing.
A potager? Perennial border? Choosing paint colors for a house & patio furnishings? Nature, consistently enriching my creative muse.
Understanding forms, patterns, silhouettes, plant drifts? Color? Nature has it all, and more.
How a body relates in scale to its surroundings?
Creating enfilades thru paths, rectangular stone terraces edged with brick, over a fountain, between pairs of boxwood, caressed by flowering shrub borders sprinkled with a few tough perennials, and finally landing the eye/foot on a bench. Nature? Hardly.
But it's nature feeding the creative muse, a tool box for designing landscapes.
What else feeds my creative muse? Music, pets, books, friends, movies...
What feeds your creative muse?
Garden & Be Well, XO Tara
