As I read a gardening article by Robin Lane Fox this morning in the Financial Times, called "American Pioneers," that looks at the impact of six US women on landscape design and photography in the early 20th century, I felt extraordinarily lucky to live in Seattle. We have the Olmsted Brothers to thank for the mature large parks that we enjoy. Many of us are fortunate enough to have our own spot of garden adjacent to our homes. I've certainly photographed my own often enough. It is a source of endless delight to my eyes and hands.
