Zoom Meeting October 17th at 2:00pm
Our Speaker will be Angela Pullen-Smith
When my husband and I bought our house in 2013, it was an ordinary city plot, surrounded only by lawn and a couple overgrown trees. However, the blank canvas was very motivating. I’ve spent the last 8 years removing sod, planting more interesting things, and adding new features such as stone work and a pond. I liked the feeling of enclosing my home in a little forest, a sanctuary in the suburbs. I’ve always been inspired by the beautiful old gardens in Kyoto, as well as the mossy Alaskan forests- places with a feeling of mystery and calmness. When planting new areas of the garden, I tried to keep in mind the entire ecosystem- what will be shaded, what will live under, where the little patches of sun will peek through, so that it will work together as a whole.
Sure, I was born and raised here- grew up on 40 acres of forest, but went to college in Washington. Though I haven’t been to Japan yet, I love visiting Japanese gardens in cities I travel to.
