What a wonderful sequence of the beginning of your unique garden!! Looking forward to the next sequence.
WoW ! Now that's some undertaking!! I can't even imagine moving such large cactus without them breaking! It's all looking Marvelous!!!!!
As I scrolled down looking at all the photos I can see that this a big project - very delicate work involved too :D
I am so impressed with the enormity of the task you tackled (kudos) and also with the gracious help you got from so many. I can't wait to see what happened next. Just a wonderful project.
Love the color of the concrete also.
oh my goodness! the sunshine! the plants! the cooperative effort! *sigh* lovely work, as usual, friend. i'm so looking forward to following this process!
How very, very kind and thoughtful of all of you. I know it will make a sad time less sad for many. Your heart is as beautiful as I KNOW this garden is!
It takes a lot of work to make something look so natural. Beautiful results, though.
How great that everyone got involved to get this project done. What a very worthy cause too!!
Looks like you did well with this project Naomi!! It would have been exciting picking out which plants to put where, etc. I'm looking forward to reading more!!
Who but you are allways amazing me?
This was, without doubt, a project most people would not touch at all.
But you did and even report with such great photos.
I clap my hands and say loudly: Hooray. Amazing project with a very good result.
You really tempt me to pop over and have a look and a long lunch talk.
Let's see what we can do in 2011, when we are in Michigan...
btw. Have you seen my report from The Olive Tree Festival in Provence? I think you will enjoy.
What a wonderful thing you all did. Do you have pix of what it looks like today?
What a lovely project and gift as well as a testament to Woody's work of a lifetime. Wonderful story and photos
I am giving Seven and Joe and their crews a standing ovation
the masonry looks amazing
I know how risky it is to move plants - I moved a few from Brooklyn to NJ and they didn't survive long
Hope sends you hugs
What a valiant effort by all concerned. And especially you dear Naomi. It is rare to have someone so blessed artistically to be such a great do-er but my goodness what an achievement. Bravo!
I love the way you captured the whole process! What a wonderful generous thing for those guys to do, and the commitment they all put into making it look perfect as well.
I can't wait to see the next set of photos!
Sounds like a wonderful project Naomi!!! I can't wait to see what happens next!!
How wonderful to have been involved in something so enduring!!!
What a production and coming together of talents. I kept thinking about the prickly cactus and how hard it would be to handle. I love the way the walkway blends into the ground color.
What a wonderful gift! When my dad was at Hospice, I met Lu, the hospice gardener (I wrote about her here: http://tinyurl.com/32h2kkp). She and her husband created wonderful testaments to life. Cactii are like that for me, too. Thank you for these 2 posts.
Wow! Great photos, Naomi! You did an amazing reportage, photo by photo of the beginning of your garden. Looks they had a lot of work indeed! Wonderful results!
Have a nice week ahead, my dear!
How generous and kind of you and your crew to take on such a big project and just for the love of plants and people. I think this is very good karma for all of you. It does not look like it was an easy task. The beautiful photos show it all.
