On Daylight as an Element of Garden Design 

Paul Ridley is a garden designer and photographer from Oxford, UK, who blogs intermittently at Paul Ridley Design. Last week, he posted a link to an “illuminating” lecture that he wrote for a site belonging to The Landscape and Horticulture Association of the UK. The topic he chose for that posting is about the role that daylight plays in the overall design of a garden. The photographs included to illustrate his lesson are simply awesome. One of them, the inspiring image above, has been lifted from the article to tempt and encourage readers to link there.
