I felt something was missing in The Good-for-Nothing Garden–the story about my garden that appeared in the New York Times yesterday. The story was right on spot–perceptively, sensitively, and humorously written by Michael Tortorello.
But the photos focused primarily on plant portraits, making it impossible for readers to get a sense of the garden as a whole. I missed some visual representation of the spatial character of the garden, a more long distance view, and that has since been confirmed by many visitors to the Garden Conservancy Open Days. So I want to address that perceived imbalance. Without narration, here are some photos I took this morning between about 9 and 10 am. None of them give a full overview of the garden, which is very difficult to do, but they do help. They’re oversized so you can expand them with a mouse click.
