Angie Reed Garner
Oh! I love your garden! You've shown pictures before of this area but I missed noticing the rounded tops on the walls - I love that too. All the little details of statuary and lights. Must be so nice to sit out there and enjoy.
It was a tough space for years, way too big and harsh for a beginning container gardener, but am after 5 years starting to get the hang of it. I love to sit out at dusk as the solar lights kick on one after another. I will try for photos then.
Such a lovely garden. Are the white five petal white flowers Jasmine?
It is some kind of jasmine-- there are both bushes and vines.
So pretty! It reminds me of one of my favourite places in the world, which is a balcony garden in Mexico City.
It's one of the best things I've ever figured out to do.
What a peaceful place, and a beautiful reflection of your personality!
It takes time to figure out a site and what can grow there and how I want things to look. I figured out I like my dad's container gardens best. He never deadheads a plant, and he adds new plants in to already-occupied pots wherever he can find the dirt to do it, and it is all ad hoc and fitting things in wherever they can go. It ends up looking messy and complicated, more like a wild space.
So I did a real about face this past year in terms of how I am gardening.
beautiful! what are you doing in Abu Dhabi?
Painting, telecommuting to run a US gallery, and cowriting some papers with my academic partner. Obs I have no children and no life. :)
Lived in Lahore for a year, connecting with you brings it all back so strongly!
cool. . .I live in Islamabad; I hope my ramblings will give you a sense of something over here :p I do post pictures from time to time.
It helps to read them-- there are parts of my own experience I am still trying to process.
I have done a lot of paintings dealing with my time in Lahore-- here.
