The black and white garden...

Yesterday in Portland I attended an HSPO lecture " Planting; A new perspective" by Noel Kingsbury . One of his suggestions was to examine our gardens in B&W photos …removing the color , suddenly…texture. Fortunatlly I never have much color in the garden , so I  was quite pleased not to see "porridge "  


  1. Now I want to see these same photos in color. :) The black and white photos always remind me of what my grandmother had to endure back in the 60s and 70s when she gardened. We're so lucky these days. But you're right the black and whites definitely bring out the texture and form of the garden plants.

  2. So, what did you think of the presentation? I've been kicking myself for not insisting that you share our umbrella to our car and we could then have driven you to yours. Oh well, it was mighty wet, but not cold.
