- The Theraputic Landscape database seems to have a lot of good links and info. Might be a good place to start if you are looking for info on doing a garden for a Hospital, or a Elder Care type home.
- The 25th Davidson Horticultural Symposium will be held March 2nd and 3rd, 2009 at Davidson College in Davidson, North Carolina.
That’s from the website. The Symposium is held every year and the speaker line-up is a good one. When I lived in the Southeast I went just about every year. Focus is on the residential landscape and gardens. If you into that sort of focus try and go.
- The Vocational Information Center has a list of links that would take you over a week to go through. If you are a beginning designer, a garden enthusiast, or looking for a very specific answer this might be your site!
- A blog called Defining your Home Garden, and a particular entry entitled: Garden Design Working with a Professional. A nice explanation by landscape designer Cathy Dickinson-Hearp, plus a good list of deer proof plants in her area of North Carolina.
- Ever heard of Tilt-Shift photography, well here’s a page full of completely awesome pics using the tilt-shift technique. It looks so incredible . . .”How could it be real“.
- A bunch of wacky illustrations that I enjoyed going through, they’ll put a smile on your face.
- Are you old enough to remember the drill to duck under your desk in case of Nuclear attack by the evil Roooskies? Then you’ll enjoy this article and accompanying illustrations(great illustrations). It now seems almost laughable, but that’s the way it was for a long time. The article was written February 1950 in Mechanix Illustrated . . . nothing like a stroll down memory lane.
- Back on November 13th, Adrian Higgins wrote a nice peice on the Gardes of Pompeii. Seems like those folks wanted the same things in their gardens that our clients want in their gardens. I am tempted to write an entire post about these findings.
That’s it. Have a happy Thanksgiving . . . if you celebrate Thanksgiving.
