Embellie aux Tuileries. A chacun son jardin secret.

Embellie aux Tuileries

Pour Matt Damon et Leonardo DiCaprio, c'est celui des Tuileries. Sheffield’s Impossible Eighteenth-Century Garden. There’s a garden growing at Furnace Park.

Sheffield’s Impossible Eighteenth-Century Garden

It isn’t just any garden though: this is an impossible garden. On the one hand, it is growing in a place where you might not have expected to find a garden this time last year. In promotional material explaining the ambitions of the Furnace Park project Dr Matt Cheeseman described the site as ‘an odd thing, a safe wasteground.’ A memorial to the lost country houses of England.

The Artificial Magic in Optical Distortions Catoptrics is an area of study concerned with the properties of reflection and the formation of images by reflecting light off mirrors.

Curious Perspectives

Dioptrics is a branch of optics dealing with the refraction of light, especially by lenses Anamorphosis is a distorted projection of an image which only becomes clear when the observer's point of view changes or it is viewed as a reflection produced by a specific curved mirror surface The 17th century book illustrations below instruct artists about the basic geometrical properties involved in producing artworks with some types of projected and distorted perspectives and optical illusions.

Toward an Archaeology of the Gaze: the Perception and Function of Garden Views in Italian Renaissance Villas

Although garden views have been included inthe scholarship since the late nineteenth and earlytwentieth centuries, they are rarely put under criti-cal scrutiny. Rather, images of gardens functionedin these publications essentially as illustrations ordocuments that provide a visual stimulus to helpreaders understand the topography of the land-scape and imagine the atmosphere and beauty of the gardens. These images, which are generallyconsidered faithful representations of a particularstate of the garden, have been employed to provideinformation about the garden’s topography andhistory. In this, historians have followed the dis-course associated with topographical images duringthe Renaissance, a genre that was predominantlylinked with the idea of truthfulness and objectivity.

When I began my first garden 40 years ago in a village near Oxford, the cottage where we lived had one cold tap and an outdoor lavatory and the ceilings sagged with damp; but the ground outside was rich and black from 500 years of digging and the accumulated silt of millennia of flooding.

Gardening Women: Their Stories from 1600 to the Present by Catherine Horwood

And, almost as important, across the water meadows on the other side of Oxford was Waterperry, where Beatrix Havergal, Miss H as she was universally known, had set up her Waterperry School of Horticulture for Ladies in 1928. Waterperry was where I first tasted an Ashmead's Kernel apple, bought my first blackcurrant bushes and fell in love with phlox.

It never occurred to me that horticulture could ever be thought an unsuitable job for a woman. But it had been a long, hard fight. But after training, the problem was still where to find work – and what to wear. Trained "lady gardeners", were something new. This is a pity. Programme_england-hanover_14-01-30.

Multimillion pound boost to save UK’s Magnificent Meadows - Heritage Lottery Fund. There were once natural wild flower meadows in every parish – today only 2% of the meadows that existed in the 1930s remain. Nearly 7.5million acres of wildflower meadow have been lost so far and they are still being destroyed.

The Save our Magnificent Meadows Project: A £3million project which will transform the fortunes of our vanishing meadows and grasslands Over the next four years, over 74,000 acres across the UK will be targeted Over 500,000 members of the public will be involved Save our Magnificent Meadows is led by Plantlife working in close partnership with ten organisations including county wildlife trusts, the National Trust, RSPB, Cotswold Conservation Board and Medway Valley Countryside Partnership Wildflower meadow planting is enjoying a huge vogue in gardening; they look beautiful and attract wildlife, particularly threatened pollinators.

Untitled. Première partie Michel Villedo et Cie, une entreprise florissante à l’âge d’or du bâtiment Chapitre premier. The History of Garden History. It's not often that I'm moved to words by an article (or at all, if I'm honest - this blog is short...), but I'm halfway through Brent Elliott's "The Development and Present State of Garden History" (RHS Occasional papers 2012) and felt pressed to say something.

The paper marks the first charting of the history of garden history, as it were. I get the impression that Brent writes as he thinks, but I quite like that, it's charming, even if it often demands a second (and fourth) reading. The first section highlights how garden history developed in what we can perhaps think of as the subjective era. Garden chroniclers had their ideas and weren't afraid to bob it into their works. The fact that they hadn't visited many of their subjects didn't seem to hamper their opinion. I don't mind admitting that I have long been confused by garden history, having occasionally dipped a toe into the shallows out of necessity and extracting whatever snippet was required at the time. Tracing our modernist roots. Landmark: A postcard of Sydney's El Alamein Fountain.

In 2010, Richard Aitken asked the ''quite young'' editor of his just published The Garden of Ideas which chapter she liked best. The book outlined all of the key moments and stylistic movements in Australian garden-making from the 1600s (when the entire country might have been viewed as one big imaginary garden) to the present, but it was a utopian slice of the 20th century that most captured her interest.

Sans titre. Toby Musgrave is a leading authority on garden history and design. Since leaving Reading University, he has embarked on a freelance career as an author, journalist, television presenter, designer, lecturer and scholar and blogger. He teaches an online garden history course through My Garden School, the world's first online horticulture school. He has a passion for horticulture and garden history which began at a very early age. He's been in Australia as a guest of The Body in the Garden: the South Australian Crime and Garden Writers' Festival which ran from October 25 - 27 this year.

Learning the art of the silent laugh. ‘Even if you tell me the funniest story I’ve ever heard, I won’t be laughing.’ This might seem an odd way to start a conversation, but it has been a mantra for our Voicing the Garden volunteer recorders since oral historian and trainer, Rib Davis, urged us to ‘practise and perfect the art of the silent laugh’. He explained that we must always have an ear out for the final edit, that in this case no matter how funny the story was, LOL wasn’t helpful. So we needed to develop a huge range of facial expressions and gesticulations to coax information and anecdotes from the interviewees in such a way that the interviewer could be smoothly (and somewhat sinisterly) removed.

The archive Voicing the Garden has created tells rich and illuminating stories both of change and permanence. We no longer light cones of nicotine shreds as pest control in the Glasshouse Range. Darkly wise, rudely great: The Body in the Garden: Adelaide. Last weekend we travelled to Adelaide for the inaugural 'Body in the Garden' festival: Australia's first literary festival dedicated to crime and garden books. I was there because of Philosophy in the Garden, rather than for my fashion (or literary) transgressions. On Friday, we took Nikos and Sophia to the Adelaide Zoo. Highlights included the pandas, tigers, sea lions and -- for me, at least -- red-billed fire finches, which were like sparrows in a Flash costume. (But zoos always leave me melancholy.) Later I attended a mayoral reception for the festival, hosted by Adelaide's Lord Mayor.
