Greenest Art


(image by funksturm)

I had to share this--it weds art and gardening, my two great loves. This is the Caixa Forum in Madrid. The stunning abstract on its wall is a Patrick Blanc vertical garden composed of thousands of live plants. I stumbled on this startling image via the Garden Rant blog, which directed me to this fascinating article on WebEcoist. Do go visit Blanc's website. It's a visual feast.

    I am going to have a vegetable garden this year for the first time since I was a kid. Very exciting!
