Garden art

FRAMINGHAM

The placement of art is key to a garden. And the perfect example can be found at Garden in the Woods, home to the New England Wildflower Society in Framingham, Mass, a story in the Christian Science Monitor reports today.

At the 45-acre "living museum" started in the 1930s, there's a synergy between plants and sculpture, the story says. Tom Smarr, horticultural director, said it helps to look at a garden as you would your home.

"You don't pick out a rug without seeing how it complements the rest of your décor. Looking at parts of the garden as 'rooms' [with] 'furnishings' makes it simpler."
