In the garden… Scene from the Orto Botanico in the Brera District of Milan

A couple finds respite in the cool shade of the garden on a hot Summer day. We did the same. After walking through the garden we found a bench and just enjoyed the scenery. The mosquitos got to be a bit fierce, though. Bring bug spray if you visit in summer. 😀

In this scene we get an important lesson on how sight lines can make a garden seem much larger than it is. The leading lines of the pathway, the encroaching growth of the plants and the architecture at the end make it seem like the garden goes on for an even greater distance. 
This garden is hemmed in By buildings on each side and isn’t particularly large, but new vistas were always opening up as you walked about.

A tree returns to the garden soil

In the Orto Botanico In the Brera District of Milan, a tree is felled but left in place to benefit wildlife, fungi and the surrounding soil. It is also a great educational tool for explaining the soil cycle and other garden concepts. Even as it decomposes, it lends a beautiful, architectural element to the garden, too. This is definitely an argument for leaving downed trees and snags in your own garden, when possible. 

In a similar fashion, I use wood chips to line the paths in my garden—an method I started after seeing the same at nearby @descansogardens. It is a great way to make use of what otherwise might go into your garden bins or, perhaps, the composter.
