Inspiration is all around. What creates excitement and motivation for planning and designing gardens comes from many sources.

Hiking along the escarpment in Ontario or experiencing landscapes and gardens in my travels through towns & countryside beyond our borders, provides great inspiration. Not only formal gardens, but natural outcrops of rock with moss along a woodland path can trigger inspiration.

Unusual and unique combinations of plants and architecture catch my attention.

All these images, and many more, are what helps in leading towards creative garden design. New experiences in new places continue to feed this creative process.
