Seeking images for a lecture in development I journeyed to several Boston area public gardens. By far the best and most inspiring is the Adrian Bloom Garden at the Massachusetts Horticultural Society. MHS can be found at Elm Bank in Wellesley, MA . See http://www. masshort.org . Great planting design and awesome combinations. Go see it and apply its principles of massing and drifts, color theory, contrasting texture and form to create visual delights and the overall space that the plantings flow through. I think this is the most exciting garden design in the area. Thank you Mass Hort!
