Can there be a more organic style of architecture than conservatories and greenhouses built, designed with elements to promote harmony between people and nature, to offer an indoor world to explore flora and fauna?
As I walk curved lanes through the middle of lush vegetation, my thoughts shift from harsh, frigid, and icy words associated with winter to verdant, inviting and colorful words associated with spring and summer.
I’ve entered bucolic indoor settings of colorful plants, fragrant flowers, koi ponds and musical birds.
I walk a few steps further down a lane passing from arid desert to leafy plants in emerald, cinnamon and crimson shades, rows of green seedlings sprouting from rich mud, and a rainbow of flowers in fuchsia, apricot and other hues.
It’s an indoor landscape with palm trees reaching up to glass ceilings, ferns encircled by lavender scented floral borders.
Everything is ornamental, aromatic and colorful in these serene spaces, inside gardens.
