When Fall Comes to New England

Inspiration comes too. Fortunately my life  finds me immersed in New England’s autumn colors. Each morning the deepening color of the forest outside my window greets my first waking sight. Daily treks down multicolored leafy roads quiet my mind and call me to attention. This year I beheld the glory of “peak color” in Rangeley, Maine. (That’s right, Rangeley– it’s located near the Canadian border–16 miles from Quebec).

‘Height of Land’ –an amazing view–breath -taking, instructive, and inspiring as well. Notice the pattern of the plantings. This remarkable beautiful place guides me in my work as a landscape designer to arrange plantings in drifts and masses inspired by nature .
