Sounds of Nature :: Water and Music in the Garden

Posted on: June 26th, 2015 by Trillium Art

“Humans need to touch natural materials as often as possible to connect us to what is real.” Walt Rickli. This past Father’s Day found us once again meeting family in Lowville, Ontario. It seems like the perfect half-way spot for us all to meet. The day was beautiful, the patio was sunny and the food […]

A Matter of Perspective

Posted on: March 14th, 2014 by Trillium Art

Signed, sealed and delivered…it’s official…and just like that, we are moving. We are now the proud owners of a lovely piece of property on just the other side of town. Our decision and transactions happened so fast that the realization is just settling in now.  The children are old enough now to be included in […]

It’s been an interesting week for gardeners.  With the warm, spring temperatures it was wonderful to get into the garden and putter around, checking on the plants that survived the ice from last week’s storm (photos from the ice storm).  I kept some shrubs wrapped, since snow flurries are back in the forecast, perhaps it […]

Designing a Garden :: One Step at a Time

Posted on: March 29th, 2013 by Trillium Art

As a landscape designer, this time of year holds a certain amount of thrill.  My Fergus garden is still under snow.  But it is slowly melting, one puddle at a time.  This is the time of year when the whole gardening season is before us and the anticipation is intoxicating!  Anything is possible.

A Sensory Experience at Canada Blooms 2012

Posted on: March 19th, 2012 by Trillium Art

We had the opportunity last week to visit Toronto’s premier flower and garden festival:  Canada Blooms.  I must admit that it has been a few years since I have attended and not since they teamed up with the National Home Show. Since we were attending over the March Break, we had our two children with […]

The Art of Garden Design
