Silhouettes in the Snow

The winter garden’s profile is often the most pronounced but overlooked outline of our landscape. Basil Bunting, although referring to various forms of art, states this theory best. “Whether you listen to a piece of music, or a poem, or look at a picture or a jug, or a piece of sculpture, what matters about it is not what it has in common with others of its kind, but what is singularly its own.”

The winter season, with all its shortcomings is meant to give us a perfect opportunity to assess the individual lines, shapes and profiles of our landscape. Although the time of rest and hibernating, winter is also a chance to review, assess and put change in place for the upcoming growing season.

Design begins now, not in the depths of spring throes. Why wait to smell the dirt, touch the stone and feel the vision unfold? Peek out the window. Your garden is what you see now – the silhouettes in the snow. Don’t see any shapes, lines, or profiles dressed in white? Time to think design!
