Edith Wharton: Garden Designer


Interiors sweetly mimic gardens in detail: repetition, contrast, color theme, textures, ceiling-wall-floor, lighting, use, form, scale, flow, & unfortunately, expense.
Sconces, paintings & ceiling 'pop'.  Hmm, how to mimic this in the right garden?


A good bon mot from garden designer & author Edith Wharton, " "Life is always a tightrope or a feather bed. Give me the tightrope."   Taken from today's,  The Writer's Almanac with Garrison Keillor.  Adore receiving it by email daily.
