This is the second part of my chat with Master Gardeners and avid garden visitors, Cheryl Alloway and Marge Bonner. They shared a lot of insights in the first part of our talk, where we talk about garden styles, color, and plants. In Part 1, we talked about garden styles, the pros and cons of color, plants to love, and the personality of embellishments. Here we pick up on the discussion of garden structures that influenced their own gardens and gardening style.
Marie: Okay. All right. Let’s move on to the structures now, almost the same as embellishments in some instances. This looks just like my backyard. [laughter]
Marge: This was a garden in Paris where I was really drawn to this structure. I don’t know what it was about it, but I think the serenity, the water, the trees the way that the two, you had sort of the two spires sticking up that were the trees themselves… But then just the way this wooden and glass structure was in between, it just it just drew my eye, there were no other structures around it and I often thought back and said someday I’m going to have something like that.
