PICTURE #5

With a sampling of textures, this picture delights the senses! In the foreground is the shade garden with some interesting, rounded-leaved plants. Then in the center of this garden are some short, grassy-leaved plants, which the eye follows to the back where the tall grasses are. Behind the tall grasses are the trees with yet a different texture.

Here an English design principle, with the smaller grassy-leaved plants to the tall grasses, uses the feel of distance and height. Your eye travels ahead then upwards. The two trees frame this view.

It is a great example of many things in one view!
