|Succulent Garden Art Exhibit|
|Make Your Own View|
This isn't a new idea- I've seen it showcased at garden shows in the past, but I think it is an example of exceptionally well done succulent planting. An idea taken to a level of an artist playing with their medium and exploring its qualities in a way that makes the observer take notice, and peer closer.
Another photo view shows that this gardener didn't limit interest to just a few frames, but a whole wall and floor containers created an artistic impact that shows what passion for something can accomplish.

There is a lesson, here.
When we really love something, and we take time to develop our love and highlight it with our talent ... something wonderful happens.
I think this is what happens in the best gardens. The dynamic of someone who truly loves flowers and plants, especially certain expressions of them, such as a species or a style of displaying them creates something extraordinary. Too often we are caught up in Madison Avenue style thinking, led to believe that gardening is like a fashion or fad. But it isn't. It is more like art. With the same love and focus that makes anything beautiful; the same craft and attention to details. Just as couture is not simply a piece of clothing, a garden is not merely throwing the requisite plantings together.
Hope you enjoyed the show.
