Since I was a kid wandering on my own in the Arizona desert, I have been very attracted to the patterns and textures of vegetation on the landscape. Becoming a landscape architect further intensified this interest of mine. Have you ever hugged a ponderosa pine tree and placed your nose right into it’s beautiful reddish-brown bark? Inhale deeply and you will be rewarded with the wonderful scent of an earthy vanilla. Hugging a big tree will make you smile.
First off you will see that I have an affinity for the Yucca plant. It is absolutely glorious!
