Art is everywhere…  Some of my favorite landscape gardeners, Patrick Turnbull and Collie Valadez, have been servicing the high end residential market in Southern California for the last 30 years. They have been involved in the design and planning, development, and care of some of the most beautiful and lovely gardens imaginable, running the spectrum from simple and green to flowers and vegetables a-plenty.

I have been lucky enough to witness and document some of their work, which you can view here.

You can also view their additional images on their website

If your sacred garden needs a magic touch, Collie and Pat are your team, so keep their info handy and Like their Facebook page!

WOW, wow, wow… This is one of the most amazing shows that i’ve ever seen! Not only because it’s the collection of works of James Fee – moving and rich with the print quality that i’ve not seen in a while, but also on display, two of his recently discovered notebook diaries and incredibly well narrated stories to read by Craig Krull. The Rose-Lynn Fisher work is mesmerizing as well as intriguing… What an experience!!! It’s a must see! Exhibit runs till September 1st, 2012
