Larry Lederman’s Lens: Order & Flair

Posted inPhotography onSeptember 23 2016, by Matt Newman

Larry Lederman‘s lens takes you to the Garden when you can’t be there and previews what to see when you can.


This week, Lederman’s Lens takes us through the Home Gardening Center and straight on to the Ladies’ Border, stopping at the Herb Garden on the way, where contrasting elements of picturesque, playful flowers and structured foliage create a theme of order and flair. Soft-profiled dahlias and clematis complement the more rigid elements of cardoon and yucca, offering the best of both aesthetics.
