Past Work - Gardens

This is a gallery of work that is inspired by the garden. Some are private home gardens and some are public gardens. I am inspired by the colours and textures and by the way people arrange plantings to adjust nature to their liking.

 

Note: Some of these images are from slides that were taken before digital cameras were available so they may not be perfectly sharp.

I think there could be faeries in this garden.

These flowers were in the ditch but they considered themselves so elegant that they needed a lace border.

An image from Riley Park in Calgary. It has the most fabulous gardens filled with my favorite blue delphiniums.

Frosty Day Crabapple
Frosty Day Crabapple

One on the many shapely crabapple trees found in older parts of Edmonton. I love it when flocks of cedar waxwing birds swoop down on the old dried apples in the winter.
