It really is a lovely work of art. How lucky the new owners will be to inherit something so wonderful.
Wishing you all the best with this new beginning, Laura. Here's to new beginnings! xoxo Teresa
Never get tired of watching the the garden Lovely lovely.
It's really beautiful. I too, am leaving behind a garden I spent years creating for a new space. It's bittersweet. You look forward to the new, but leaving your creation in the hands of someone else is a bit like leaving your three year old at day-care. No one is going to love your baby like you do!
Will you maintain Interleafings, Laura?Just added to new blogRoll page on Bay Area Tendrils
Delicious photography! Tough to give up a garden. Fun to replan another, even if smaller.
Thanks, everyone. Bittersweet is the right word; on the one hand I've had the pleasure of creating these gardens and seeing the vision come to life; on the other hand I am ready to move on and have learned never to get too attached to any one place, because nothing is permanent. I can look at it with joy and pleasure and satisfaction and not feel (too) sad!@Cynthia, 3yo in daycare, exactly!@Alice, InterLeafings isn't going anywhere; I hope you include me on your blogroll!
Laura, between looking at your photos and listening to Andrew and Lynn talk about moving, it reminds me to look around and appreciate what I have now. I doubt that if I moved anyone would keep up all of my gardens. A non-gardening neighbor once commented that I should cut down the bushes between me and the road ... to "clean up the yard." (And, why would I want to look at the road instead of flowering bushes?) I hope the right people find your's and Lynn's properties.
Kari, it's an interesting exercise to detach from a place, and take the lessons it taught you and use them to choose your next home. I've never lived anywhere longer than 8 years; so not that scared of change (and in fact, welcome it!)
So gorgeous Laura. You've captured it's true essence with you lens which will reflect through to your heart, always. Now the excitement of planting somewhere new.BTW are those artichoke plants I see? I love those.
Lovely, the new owners really are fortunate to have someone like you to have designed their yard for them. I can't wait to see what you do in your future projects.
So beautiful Laura, and how wise you are. Thanks for reminding us how important non-attachment is. I easily forget that one, though life is forever offering that lesson.Will miss those luscious gardens. Your photography is getting more and more gorgeous! Hugs, Judy
wow - how envious I am of that wonderful climate to have a garden as stunning as that in November. I'm positively green :^)
