Patterns & Textures

Patterns and textures evoke different moods in the garden. Pinecones and seashells spiral in certain proportion and repetition. Their progressions and relationships are naturally harmonious. Like the Golden Mean and Fibonacci’s Sequence, they work and just feel right. I can enter a room and feel if the arrangement and proportions are right or wrong.

“If I were a painter, I would go to nature for all my patterns.” ~ Thomas Bewick, English illustrator & engraver
