All work no play

This season has been an incredibly busy one with projects near Arezzo, Montespertoli, Siena and Pescia.  Our days have been filled with dusk to dawn landscaping and more importantly watering, weekends have involved trips to client gardens with the children to keep the water flowing and to keep the poor thirsty plants alive.  With great trepidation dare I say it might just rain tonight?  With days spend digging, strimming, moving earth, building terraces, fencing, planting and watering I felt the need for a little thoughtful time enjoying the results of good old fashioned hard work.  So I have created a mood board on Pinterest http://pinterest.com/bellaterra1/garden-design/ whre you can share with me some wonderful inspirational gardens.  I have learn't so much over the years through practical work but also buy listening to others and enjoying gardens created by other designers and gardeners.  One of the most uplifting gardens for me is by http://www.poderepalazzo.com/ designed by Patrizio Fradiani, I hope some day to create a formal kitchen garden for myself, in the meantime I am so lucky to be working on a few glorious Tuscan Gardens here near my home in the Sienese countryside.  Watch this space for images of may latest work to be uploaded soon.  For now enjoy these pics of Patrizio's garden and sign up for pinterest and see my moodboard.
