Neatly clipped boxwood orbs seem to roll across a path at Madoo, artist Robert Dash's garden in Sagaponack, NY. These sturdy spheres enliven this spot, and make the trunks of the gingko trees look like giant mallets in an ongoing game of croquet.
Blogging about gardens, travel, and the cosmos. Basically,I'm a home gardener who's gone round the bend. I became interested in plants more than 20 years ago, during extended travels in tropical South America and Southeast Asia. Some of the tropical plants seen during those journeys, along with hundreds of other plants from all parts of the world, now grow in my ever-expanding garden. I’m a former newspaper photographer, travel writer and was managing editor at Fine Gardening magazine. I now design, write about, and photograph gardens. I give lectures about them too.
