I haven't been here in a while and that has been deliberate. I've needed to ween myself from my obsessive Internet and so I needed to be here much less as well. But I wanted to let you all know I am still alive, still designing gardens and in many ways still doing well.
I have lots of pictures I could and perhaps should post here. I know that it is nice to have the chronicle to look back on and if things slow down and I have time to do so, I will share.
But for now I leave you with a pretty picture of a design for a contest that I made together with another designer and Tess. It was one of my first successful collaborations with Tess - a case where I really trusted her skills and talents and didn't try to micromanage. That trust was rewarded, and in turn I learned quite a bit about Photoshop as well. Skills that are good to have.
Gardening season slowing down here and I have promised myself to "enjoy life a bit more" in the coming months. It is gray out and I have been stressed and the results have been that I am in a bit of a rut. I want to start going out to the theater, visiting museums and lectures and the like more. I've been neglecting those things for a bit. I would like to make the time to enjoy those things more again.
