A Simple Garden

I found this postcard at an antique store last weekend.  I was totally enamored by the simplicity of this landscape...bright white walks, crisp green lawn, stately white house.

Yes, I know, it's totally empty (and devoid of energetic plant life).  But, after grading tons of complex landscape designs this past couple of weeks I think my eyes enjoyed the relief.

For those interested, this is an image of a house in Story City, Iowa in the 1920s.


  1. I feel that you should have used the newly created word we came up with in studio somewhere in this post :)

  2. I should have! What is it...simplicitae?
