something that is fabulous.

I’m not the only one who stops traffic to snap a picture of a nice garden, right? Well, this one made me slam on the brakes.

Keep in mind that this is March, so the garden isn’t even in its prime. But if this is what is meant by a four-season garden, I’m sold. It puts my garden to shame; even with its paperwhites and emerging buds, it’s still pretty sparse.

It’s maybe only 2m (6′) deep and certainly isn’t bursting with flowers, so what makes this garden work? I’d say its strong but limited colour pallette, depth of tone and texture, and its use of repeated elements. Love it!

Never mind the flamingo – they’re everywhere right now as a result of a local communication company’s promotion.
