I have been busy designing since March.
There is therefore a need to rest and think about new ideas.
Reading is one way.
I have recently bought two good books.
One is William Robinson’s Wild Gardening.
The other is Gertrude Jekyll’s Colour Schemes for the Flower Garden.
They were both very influential in establishing planting design as we know it today.
I look forward to a chance to discover more about both these authors and their work.
I am sure this new understanding will add depth to my knowledge.
It will also help inspire me to create gardens with colour and sympathy to the natural landscape.
