Trees are falling outside and it is SO utterly distracting.  I have the TV on to try and distract from the sound of chainsaws and the occasional building shaking thud — it is simply not working to try and work through this…. I am headed out to take some photos of and then am heading off the New England Grows – the big landscape industry trade event here in Boston.

I hope to capture some interesting shots like these (if I am lucky).  These were taken by Sol Lang in Canada where the lumber industry is thriving.   While I am all emotionally mixed up about the trees, I know it is ultimately the right thing….(re-read my post with my tree downing explanation here) — but I can’t help that my eyes bug out of my head as these things fall – the sight is shocking, and the quick end is brutal.  But it is my optimistic hope that I won’t have to wait too long before something beautiful can come of the destruction.  So I am going to start with trying for some beautiful pictures today. I’m off – back tomorrow.

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.
