Today I finally went to visit the Garden In The Woods in Framingham – what a fabulous place! It’s a botanical garden on 45 acres that’s a showcase for the beauty of plants native to New England.  It’s an outgrowth of the New England Wildflower Society and well worth the visit.  You can fully stock your garden there but there’s lots more: trails to walk, lectures, a photographer’s dream and many educational programs.

Of course I brought home some new babies to plant: Penstemon digitalis and New Jersey Tea. I’ll show some pics when I plant them.

This captured my imagination.  I just love the idea of roof gardens on a shed!

Spigelia marilandica

This lady is also known as Pinkroot and Indian Pink – a showstopper in the month of June!

I think I’m bonded to the Tiarella cordifolia, also known as a Foamflower.  It’s one of my favorite leaves to print!

I have no idea what I captured in this pic! If you know, do tell!

The natural world is phenomenal and so much of the man-made world - our architecture, our cities - are stunning accomplishments. They exist hand in hand in both beautiful expressions and sometimes disastrous manifestations. Our entire existence with the natural and the invented is intertwined – each dependent on the other, even as my art evolves, each breathing in the wake of the other. Surface design is one aspect of the process that I love. I thoroughly enjoy the play with color, value and construct, particularly the improvisation which starts with one thing, an idea, a glimpse of a vision, perhaps something that captures my eye for a moment in time and it grows organically. I become focused on whatever piece I'm working on and follow my muse to find my way.
