Inspired By: Big Apple Circus

Night before last I took my kids to the Big Apple Circus.  I was inspired by the PBS documentary series (Circus) that we recently discovered with our awesome Netflix subscription (we are rapidly moving towards going completely cable free).  But the circus (which was fantastic and an all around family hit — truly, far better than I ever remember Circus Vargus or Ringling Bros from when I was kid) in turn inspired me to think about a circus themed garden.  This is what I came up with ….would you add anything?

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.
