Exquisite Handmade Gardens
I thought April Fools might reflect on the weather. That it would start with a wet, cold day and then, suddenly, it would change to a glorious sunny day and stay like that for the rest of Spring. Well, I don't remember exactly what happened, but today, a few days later, it's sunny and mild. And it has been like that for a few days now, I mean mild. Sometimes sunny, and lately quite windy which is not the norm in these parts.
But, it has finally started to feel like Spring! The ground has been more often drier than wet, you can even see dust. Dust!
So I just want to draw your attention to one thing. I won't be taking much of your time. This wet & dry affair reminded me of the Japanese Garden in Monaco. The Principality enjoys a dry, Mediterranean climate and yet they sport a type of garden that one (or many ;-) often associates with moss, dew and even lots of snow.
This means that watever the weather or the climate, wet or dry, cold or warm, you can always make a garden, occasionally the same type of garden.
But why get started now if you can go out and enjoy the outdoors? And there is always inspiration outside, like ideas to use in color combinations. For example a red-orangy field speckled with young, light green weed in the sunlight...
Enjoy your garden
