Miss R's Rule Number 3--Do something to make the world more beautiful.
Sunday, January 18, 2009
Several years ago on a garden tour, I found myself looking at what was on the ground plane rather than what was in the gardens. I started shooting photos of paths and patterns of what I saw for future reference and inspiration. I didn't always record where I took the photos, so I really can't tell you in some cases where the garden is, or whose garden it is. Below are a few that I do remember and have done my best to credit them appropriately. When I need inspiration, these images are some of what I look at--there's even one of mine in there.
Paving pattern: Chanticleer, PA
Paving pattern: Lotus Land, CA
Paving pattern: Private residence, NJ(my design)
Paving pattern: Greenwood Gardens, NJ
Paving pattern: Private residence, CA (designer: Nancy Goslee Powers)
I have spent my adult life as a designer in several incarnations. I currently practice residential landscape design in New Jersey.
Miss Rumphius' Rules has been my screen name since 2001. The blog was conceived in 2007 as online journal exploring my continuing journey as a designer with a focus on design, gardens, and my creative process. I hope people find it inspiring, though provoking and interesting.
