Was it the Disco Ball?
A short while back, I was looking for a spherical ornament for a garden I was designing for a client. It probably has to do with my long past nights of dancing under a disco ball till dawn, but I have an affinity for spheres--a perfect shape that echos the earth's own.

I often use Alliums as part of a planting plan for because of the spherical blooms. I have also used gazing balls, carved stone orbs and lit night orbs. Below are just a few of the spheres that I like.

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.
