Gardening creativity

I went to an Artist's Way meet-up gathering this evening for past and prospective participants;  it was a 12-week program that I did summer before last.  It was a great experience.  Yes, I'd still like to do watercolors, draw more, and use pastels (and still plan to do that), but I hadn't given enough credit to what writing, teaching, and creating gardens meant as a creative endeavor.  That's what going through the program helped me realize.

Gardening is essentially creative. We create spaces and add plants in ways that please us. We combine textures, and colors, and shapes. We work with a changing medium.

What fun!
