I like any garden style – when thought-out, appropriate to its location (with little input), and not done because it’s popular (no grounding or conviction). Many can pick out the latter…no thanks.
But there’s something about classics, which always fit and look good, transcending trends or fads. Fashion.
Great bones, simplicity, and just the right amount of color from Marfa TX –
Cactus and yuccas. Oh no…and “the children”!
Seriously, this place uses the southern coastal Spanish Bayonet / Yucca aloifolia and native Spineless or Cacanapa Prickly Pear / Opuntia ellisiana. The former is named appropriately and has the sharpest leaf tip of anything I know of, but it’s smaller size provides a more tropical effect…the latter is almost cliche here, but I still like it.
Marfa is clearly of the surrounding Chihuahuan desert grassland. Understated, yet grand.
Color too, and not just whites (the sum of all colors), used discretely as opposed to a floral print.
Want to come here, and just walk around with your camera? I can relate…
