Just finished reading “The Jewel Box Garden” A interesting and very opinionated look at Garden Design.

As someone who works in the Midwestern or Great Lakes part of the U.S. it is hard to look at a lot of west Coast pictures and not be a little envious of the climatic situation. Sure we can pull some of that plant combo stuff off, but for the limited growing season-it is, at times, hard to pull off the look.

We do what we can in the climates we live in and try to find ways to exploit the summer growing season. At any rate no matter where you design there is something in here you will be able to take away and use.

After all, isn’t that what we really are asking for as professionals-be it a lecture, or a book, or in attending a symposium???
