Looking Through Glass

There is nothing wrong with the glass on your screen. Do not attempt to adjust the image.

For the most part, we experience our gardens as pictures seen through the windows, the eyes of the house. It’s easy, as a gardener, to forget this because we spend so much time in gardens. We forget about the interior perspective! We can’t see the forest for the trees. A big part of what I love about gardening is that when I’m done for the day I get to look at the end result. For me, that usually includes being in my house and going from window to window to see the effect of that work.

There are parts of my house that are over a hundred and twenty years old. I don’t know the age of my windows, but sitting at my table looking out, the world looks more than just a little warped. I always assumed that this was the result of glass getting old.
