A hot summer day led a friend to suggest an outing to a favorite (air conditioned) local antique mall…

an old gardening book caught my eye…

Better Homes & Gardens Garden Style

 

as I was flipping through the pages an old friend appeared – Ryan Gainey…

Friends, this horticulturist and lifelong student of garden history is quite the character.  I met him years ago when the Mississippi Museum of Art was hosting an antique and garden show.  In return for a donation Mr. Doctor and I received a garden consultation here OPP from none other than Ryan Gainey.

The essay in my found book is titled Nature in the City which is apropos to Mr. Gainey’s style of living.  His Atlanta garden and home are congruous and this is the style he imbues when working with clients.

“My clients share my philosophy that the garden is integral to the house and vice versa.”

his garden is glorious…

We still enjoy design aspects suggested by Mr. Gainey many years ago and our garden is definitely a better place because he visited!

I loved running across an old friend today…
