From the introduction to the lecture:
...but today we’ll look at images of the garden David and I have made... in Columbia County— how it fits into the surrounding landscape. Really, though, much of this program could be taken as homage to Innisfree. I want to show some ideas, maybe a sensibility, in common between that— great garden— and our minor one. Themes in common are, first and last, respect for the site, with its inherent features (stone in particular)— but also, as Kate has written about Innisfree, a sensibility part Asian and part 20th century modernist. Kate did seem to hope that this talk would have Ideas, as well as plants and pictures. Presumably she won’t mind if some of the ideas are just cribbed from her (I love her, and she does make me think)— and then applied to looking at our garden.
(Lots of plants, too!)
I want to thank our great friend Kate Kerin, again, for getting me to undertake this big project, which has become among other things a sort of summary of our garden. It stands in for the book I've often thought of but haven't written.
Supposing you have a device with a decent screen, the photographs should show much better than they could when overly magnified to fit the auditorium screen-- so I hope that even folks who attended the lecture might enjoy another look.
