A garden in the Tuscany’s landscape

May 24, 2011

I spent a very nice evening talking about gardens, art and politics with the creator of the Bosco della Ragnaia, Sheppard Craige, and his wife, sculptor Frances Lansing. Apart from the Bosco, a huge amazing garden which is his masterpiece, Sheppard is making a small private garden near his home on the top of a Tuscan hill. I like very much how he gave the feeling that the garden is melting with the round shapes of the beautiful landscape around. Frances is also doing two gardens there, much more closed and I would like to photograph the edible garden, surrounded by walls and beautiful metal doors designed by Frances, later in the season when the vegetables will have grown.
If paradise does really exist, it might be in Tuscany…
