At The Gate

From the Tea Olive Terrace, below, looking into my backyard. At the same gate, in my backyard, below, looking into the Tea Olive Terrace.

Double Axis: 2 views fabulous. A fabulous view in 1 direction must be fabulous in the opposite direction.
There are no exits in a garden, only entries.

Pics taken last week in my garden. See the template? A Trinity of the Ages: Path, Gate, Boxwood. Ramped up: painted gate, gravel path, blooming hydrangeas.

Thanks for yet another great design vignette - this one on axis inspires me to convey more tips for our *much* drier version of Atlanta's temperatures!

No exits, only entries.
Love that.

Isn't this the most beautiful Spring?

hi tara,

well i finally get vanishing threshold. i am so into learning about this double axis business. i like the phrase, there are no exits, only entrances. that makes a difference to me. i sometimes guide people through my garden certain ways (to see the best view, etc,) and what you are saying is that all ways should be the best views. ahh, see i'm getting it. slowly. thanks for always pushing me to learn more.
