Circles and Squares

I wasn’t good at algebra, but I kind of rocked geometry in high school.  Maybe that’s why I’m so drawn to basic shapes in the garden.

I love a cut-out circle on a deck…it could work to highlight a special tree, a garden, flowers, or even a hot tub (which is what I think is going on to the left in the first picture below).

I also love rectangular (and especially square) pavers.  They look so modern in contrast with grass or rocks.  I think circles and squares could absolutely coexist in a backyard!
