savoring autumn

One last walk today 

to gather all that was autumn




her Oaks



her Maples



her Locust





and berries


Katsura



 Dogwood

   Bittersweet
  

and Creeper



One last time to step back and admire the passing season.

I hope you are all enjoying this Thanksgiving weekend.

Giving Back



image designs by alyson

Over the last few years I have been razzled and dazzled and wowed by your oh! so beautiful photos and witty words. Not only have I been thoroughly entertained but have come away with the knowledge of the whys, whats and hows of interior design.

For the past 30 years I have been blessed with a successful career designing landscapes on both the east & west coasts as well as internationally and  feel what better way to say thank you than to share this knowledge with you by giving back.

"Paying it forward" with the why, what and how of landscape design I hope not to disappoint, but to compliment your work and inspire you as you have inspired me.

Gardens whether they be a grand estate or a tiny balcony on Parisian side street all serve as introductions to what lies within.
