All Around Us

Gardening books are always talking about aiming for a pleasing design - having different heights and depths of plants, using a variety of textures and colours, exploiting the sculptural qualities of plants. Out in the natural world, you see it all the time. 

The colour of the distant trees draws us into the view.

Leaves like a beautiful watercolour painting.

Strong lines of the tree trunks and branches softened with the wispy leaves.

Like a bowl full of candy.

The sky echoing the curvy lines of the sumac.

  1. I love looking at the fall colours in your part of the world. A bowl of candy sounds about right - I believe you are talking about candy corn?
