My Garden

This is a request from Blackswamp Girl(love the name) who wanted to see my garden, after a April fool’s Day post on this Blog.

Canna’s etc.

[Just a little something. ]

By Rick Anderson

The Whispering Crane Institute was originally formed to act as the umbrella organization for the Philosophy of Design Symposium, and other seminars and workshops given by Rick Anderson and Richard L. Dube’. In the year 2000 WCI became a sole proprietorship owned by Rick Anderson. Today the WCI provides design and consultation services for Landscape Contractors, acts as a Green Industry think tank, and provides training for others in the form of workshops, seminars, and individual consulting. The WCI also provides written material, opinions, case-studies and how-to articles for industry trade magazines.

  1. Ooooh… Rick, you’re a garden tease! Judging by that container behind the canna, the rest of the garden must be as spectacular as I had imagined. 🙂

    Actually I have a long way to go, I have concentrated on this area next to the back of the house, and on the veg. garden. With several acres I have a long way to go. I am planting several hundred grasses next month so that will help.

    By the way, is that a ‘Red Sensation’ cordyline behind the canna? I planted one in a round pot (on the other side of the door from my canna urn, ironically enough) and surrounded it with an airy purple-flowering verbena and various coleus. I love that architectural presense the cordylines and phormiums have.

    Yep, part of my burgundy pot. like a lot of Designers(good ones 🙂 ), I am a sucker for texture, foliage, and ‘presence’.
