Wow, this garden is amazing. Where is it?? The book you mentioned I have heard of, but never read, maybe I should give it a shot. Anyway, happy week to you : )

Beautiful! I'll bet it looks pretty from above if there were a place to photograph it that way also. The top photo looks like a wonderful cover of a book - I would buy one of your pictures of garden travels even if it did not have a catchy title!

My husband has done this in our backyard. We don't have too many flowers in the meadow, though things like coneflowers are in our flower beds.

A prairie meadow. Prairie strikes me as an American place type. Am I wrong? Ah, I see on the picture pages "North American prairie meadow." Those are beautiful pictures. I love that look.

Wonderful that prairie grasses and flowers can flourish here. Maybe some prairie reading would be appropriate - I recommend Willa Cather's My Antonia!

Well, I don't know what the place really looks like, but your photographs are charming.

I'm a little bit in love with TSS, he is such a talent. And James Hitchmough does very interesting work, I wish we had the space to try some of his ideas on scatter seed planting. I read a lovely piece by him once about a garden he made in a very rough, urban space that he visited early one morning some years after it was planted. A beefy, bald, tattooed man approached them with his two similarly menacing dogs and said 'Are you the f*****s that made this? It's the only thing that gets me out of bed in the morning'.

Such a beautiful, etheric Queen Anne's Lace planting! Sometimes one finds just one little bug living in the cage underneath the flowers. And in the US, native Navajo (Dine) weavers use the roots to dye their wool a glorious and grounding deep golden yellow.
