To help tide myself over, I like to look through my old garden photos. And while I was doing that today, I realized, holy cow, I’m sitting on a huge stack of amazing North County images!
As a field editor for around a dozen Better Homes & Gardens magazines, I’ve had the privilege over the years to scout some really beautiful locations, including a number of residences in North County. One of my favorites was the home of my friend Linda Mosley and her husband, Kim, where I discovered a sprawling woodland garden adorned with found treasures and Linda’s own captivating sculptures. Truly a magical place.
Before retiring to Austin in 2008, the Mosleys, both lifelong artists and educators, had lived in NoCo for many years, working at St. Louis Community College and contributing greatly to the local art community. These images, which I’m using to kick off my new Gardens of NoCo series, feature their gorgeous garden in June 2005. All of the pottery sculptures, including the innovative “lace” bodices, were hand made by Linda, in a studio not far from her herb garden. Enjoy!
Click any image and navigate with the arrows beneath it. To see more of Linda’s work, visit the NAC Gallery in Ferguson, which Linda had a big hand in opening.
