Tara Dillard is the epitome of garden design; she is a true artist, both in her vision and implementation of composition. Words, eyes, and trowel serve as her paintbrush. Not only does she design and install gardens, write books and lecture about landscaping; she does all this with emphasis on creativity and harmony. With regard to gardening and combining house-garden life, her theories revolve around what she terms as "Vanishing Thresholds". Her landscapes- both in home and garden, consist of a series of vignettes; small still lifes meant to make you stop, take a moment and just look. Beautiful!
To "meet" her in person, check out her wonderful blog at Vanishing Threshold: Home Garden, Life.
In looking at the photography in Tara's blog, I feel like I'm wandering through a wonderful book featuring design, gardening, and above all harmony. Her photos range from still lifes composed of garden tools, dining tables to wonderful Halloween vignettes, It leads me to think of paintings that make me feel the same way.
Scroll down for some examples of truly stunning art. This time in honor of Tara, the theme is gardening and flower vignettes.
