I don't want to sound arrogant but I have to be honest. (good sentence huh? funny) I rarely read anything about gardens, gardening, or design that I don't know, haven't read, or haven't heard before. I've been in this field for over 40 years; I grow plants, read about plants, photograph plants, write about plants, schedule vacations and trips to see gardens or interesting habitats, garden obsessively, and I've designed over 1,000 gardens.
When I see there's a new post on Thomas Rainer's Blog, I get excited.... I've yet to be disappointed.Grounded Design: musings on the form, meaning, and expression of designed landscapes.
