A corner of sublime 'prairie' in my garden, inspired by contemporary horticultural theories and the practice of 'prairie-planting' gardens. At the beginning of 2013 I decided to remake a narrow flower bed next to the house, sowing the plants required. I like informal, flowing effects and I chose fast-growing plants: Ammi majus, Hordeum jubatum, and Echinacea purpurea 'Magnus'. Then I documented with photography the evolution of this flower bed. I was inspired by the soft flow of energy offered by the Hordeum.
