A Garden Imprint

Olga Korbut, the tiny gymnast (also known as the Sparrow from Minsk) who won four Olympic Gold medals said, “Don't be afraid if things seem difficult in the beginning. That's only the initial impression. The important thing is not to retreat; you have to master yourself.” That's solid advice for anything in life you may tackle, specifically the task of creating a beautiful outdoor space on your own.

If you think working with the soil, stone and plants too much to master, read on. Some of the most stunning gardens and exterior spaces are those created by people who simply have a passion and love for the outdoors and its surroundings. Frankly, their enthusiasm never runs dry; resting is only an option to take it all in.

With spring literally a few weeks away, this wonderful story from Garden Design Magazine is worth perusing. Each space within this woman’s outdoor sanctuary and its astounding beauty may give you the extra boot you need to explore what you can master this spring. Now get your favorite warm brew and peruse.  Enjoy!
