A Note From Allan

Welcome to my blog. Gardeners love to share plants and experiences. Please join me as I write about gardening and design, some of the gardening books I've reviewed, and tips collected over time.

The Garden Guru designs and plants flower gardens in Montreal, Canada, [USDA Zone 4 or CNDN Zone 5] lectures on design, and offers a garden coach service. An occasional emailed question is welcome and answered free of charge.

Kudos to a Fellow Garden Blogger

Thomas Rainer is a landscape architect who blogs at grounded design. However, his site is no mere garden blog. With each posting, he takes the reader on a journey from which few would want to return. In his blog of Tuesday, April 20, 2010, he compares works of abstract art to landscape design.The tile of this posting is  Abstract Expressionism and Planting Design; A Visual Analogy.

I have seen the artwork before.

I have seen the landscapes before.

I have never seen the artwork and the landscapes together quite like this before.

Please visit his site to see this short photo-essay. The visual analogy is beyond words.

For readers' convenience and because I appreciate his work, I have added a link to grounded design in the column to the right.
