When I lived in London, there was a constant controversy about the pigeons in Trafalgar Square.   Some wanted them to stay and others wanted them to go… I frankly didn’t care that much.  I mean, if it were say, St Marks Square (Piazza San Marco) in Venice, I would firmly be on the side of the pigeons, but to me Trafalgar wasn’t that defined by the birds…but that’s just me… but I find it funny how a bird can be so controversial…I wonder if the birds realize how many feathers they ruffle?  (ha ha).

Seriously though…I love the pigeon lights… and if a flock of them took over a local square where I live now…I would go to the mats to defend them.

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.
