The poor quality of the interior shot illuminated my Vanishing Threshold! I read Tara Dillards blog every chance I can get. She talks a lot about the Vanishing Threshold. A term she coined to describe the lack of boundaries between the inside of your home and the outside garden. Because my house is on such a high foundation it has been difficult for me to capture that on film. But the other day I did! The tree/shrub is a huge Japanese Photenia that explodes in huge white flowers each spring. The white interior and white flowers creates my Vanishing Threshold.
Edited Note: I forgot to mention the beautiful roses came from #3 son and his beautiful girlfriend!
