An Island of Calm at the Philadelphia Flower Show

The Philadelphia Flower Show was a wonderful, colorful, over-the-top, jolt your senses experience. Throngs of plant and garden enthusiasts mixed with an equally large group of those who I suspect were just looking for something to do with their day. Amidst the jostling and jumble of voices I found this display; a serene island of calm.

Immediately my breathing became deeper and slower, my shoulders relaxed and my senses found respite in the earth tones, organic lines and meditative quality of this garden display. Its beauty is in its simplicity.

Here was a garden that could guide me in future garden designs. Here was a garden that reflected my quest for peace, calm and simplicity. Here was a garden where I found my balance.
