Hung from On High

The signature garden of the 2011 Northwest Flower & Garden Show took full advantage of the ceiling….for hanging.  Yes, half of the garden seemed as if d4collective  hung it from the sky!

Sketch of 'Hanging Book Sculpture'

‘The Garden in Verse’ was celebrated by a hanging sculpture, or mobile, and featured images of book covers from the garden designers’ libraries.  We chose verse from authors who honored nature with their words.  We chose verse from different centuries and cultures.  Our intent is to support the story of making conscious choice to heal and nurture the garden plots we call our own.  Our intent is to underscore that all of our gardens, the garden collective, need to support and sustain the environment.  This message isn’t new, it is the same message written for centuries. And that is illustrated by the verse, “You will find more in woods than in books.  Trees and stones will teach you more than you can learn from masters. ~St. Bernard de Clairvaux (1090-1153)
