backyard paradises. apparently some sort of pbs series detailing backyard art. looks very cool. there’s video of the various backyards on the site which i haven’t tried to watch yet. the one pictured above was created by a woman in south africa:
It is said that she lay ill in bed one night, considering how dull and grey her life had become, when she resolved, there and then, that she would strive to bring light and color into her life. That simple decision, to embellish her environment, was to grow into an obsessive urge to express her deepest feelings, her dreams and her desires.
