Garden Photo of the Day - The Incomparable Japanese Maple in Fall
"The fact that time is moving faster means that it is getting more and more difficult for people to take control of time, or even just to take time off and relax.
And it is precisely this dilemma which led to the demand for gardens today to be sanctuaries of contemplation, where one feels embraced by nature.
In essence, gardens which provide people with peace of mind, a sense of stability and a feeling of contentment. It’s no longer enough to merely provide a green zone here, or an occasional floral embellishment to a skyscraper there.
What we need today are gardens that can reach deep into people’s hearts.”
