The New York Times has a fantastic Q&A with Piet Oudolf—friend of the Garden and landscape designer du jour—on how to go about designing a four-season garden. It’s easy to get hung-up on the gorgeous photos, but do be sure to read Oudolf’s fantastic tips on how to design for winter interest.
And then we went outside briefly on the meticulous grounds at the New York Botanical Garden and were knocked out by some of the amazing specimens around us. They are species we know, like the Dogwood and the Pieris japonica, but it kind of seemed like these plants wanted to reintroduce themselves to us and remind us of their fabulousness. It’s a pretty good time of year to really look at these two plants. It’s hard to believe they will ever be more beautiful than they were today, but they will.
