Winter Travels Broaden the Garden Spectrum

New Englanders are infamous for packing their bags and hitting the road during the winter months. Whether you visit the slopes, the islands or the desert, elements in the landscape are worth paying attention to and placing them in your memory bank. What is your favorite place in the winter? It doesn’t have to be far away. What scenery and landscape brings you the most inspiration for your garden? What are the elements that make it special?

Even if you travel to the grocery store, opening your eyes to take notice can help you determine what matters in your own garden. During the winter months, the air is dry and the skies are an intense blue. Look at what pops. Be it trees, structural elements or simply the architecture and style of someone’s house. What makes it stand out?

Tell me your favorite place to visit and what makes it special. Chances are there is an element that draws you to a particular location, besides the obvious. One of Annie’s favorite places is the Southwest. Look at both photos and you’ll see that vistas are an important element to Annie’s landscape.

The inspirational gardening thought of the day is by Marcel Proust. ““The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes.”
